Procycling: Marcel Kittel wins Scheldeprijs and Tom Boonen's last race in Belgium

Marcel Kittel:
“It was some pressure to win, being the defending champion, and I’m happy I could finish off the great job of my teammates. It was an important day also because Tom rode for the last time in Belgium. He was incredible during the race, sacrificing himself for the team and for a good result, despite having his big goal of the season on Sunday. He showed again what a great rider he is and I’m happy to end my relationship with him in such a way. I hope he will have reasons to smile after Paris-Roubaix, where I wish him all the best in his attempt to bring a fifth cobble-shaped trophy home. The mood in the team is fantastic, we are winning everywhere and that gives us all a huge motivation to keep going like that. You could see that also today, when everyone was involved in the chase, from Tim to Zdenek and from Saba, who unfortunately crashed, to Tom. I’m grateful to all of them! Can’t say how happy I am to win again this race, which I really like a lot. I’ll now take a break before returning to action at the Tour of California. It will be only my second time there, but I’m looking forward to this race, because it’s very well-organised and the atmosphere is great.” 

Tom Boonen:
“Today was unbelievable! I was touched by the warm welcome I received and by the huge support I got from the fans. I would never have dreamed of such incredible moments. I want to thank everyone for turning out and to the organizers for moving the start to Mol, making it a day I will never forget!”
