De Brabantse Pijl

While I was 8am-8pm at school busy with lessons, meetings and talking with parents... Peter Vakoc won De Brabantse Pijl. Good lad!

Petr Vakoc:
“It’s really amazing! I am grateful to the team for its incredible work and for having faith in me. They supported me, rode for me and I am happy to repay them with this victory. Julian was very important in the final kilometers, where he did a fantastic job. He’s a good friend of mine, as we know each other since the U23 years. We are roommates during races, and yesterday we talked of what we could do today, and now it’s great to see how things have panned out.
In the last kilometers, I noticed that the others were fading, so I went full gas at the bottom of the climb, also because I wanted to get some seconds in hand and make sure the peloton will not come back. These steep climbs suit me well and I gave it all to make the gap. It’s probably the biggest win of my career and I’m very content with this result, because I was targeting Brabantse since the start of the year. It’s a beautiful victory, which comes after countless hours of training, but also as a result of the work I’ve done on my endurance, a key factor in this regard being last year’s Giro d’Italia. Now I look toward Amstel Gold Race with even more confidence, because the form is there and my legs are strong.”
