Robbe Ceurens (BEL)

“Today was the first race of the season again, my motivation was high and I really wanted to do well. The first race is always really nervous and today was no exception. The first 2 laps were really fast but later the race got controlled by some of the ProTeams. The last 2 of 7 laps the speed went up again. I could settle myself in the 7th position with 2km to go. Before the sprint started I lost some places but still in a good position to sprint to a 10th place in the end!”

Daniel Holt (USA)

“Being the first race of the season, we told the guys to focus on the basics, be careful, fuel properly, and finish the race. Robbe was our designated sprinter and he didn’t disappoint. There’s nothing like starting the season off with a top ten!”
