"The legs are good again", the winner said. “Things were a little less good after the Tour. I was a bit tired and unhappy in the races afterwards. Fortunately I could win again today. The team did a great job for me. We controlled the race all day with Koen Bouwman and Pascal Eenkhoorn. It was a hectic final, with a short climb at the end. We got over it well. Then we rode fast to the finish. I could finish it off there.”
