Wout van Aert: "I knew I was a good time trialist"
June 12 th 2019 - 17:00
It’s a great win. I can’t believe it. I worked a lot on my time trialling these past few weeks but I didn’t expect to win today. I’m super happy. Obviously it was a good course for me on the long straight roads. I knew before that I was a good time trialist but I never had a chance to focus on it and I never had the right material before. Now with a very experienced team it makes a big difference. This was my first TT for Jumbo-Visma and I directly won it. It’s my first WorldTour victory too. I definitely proved on this Dauphiné that it’s a good choice to go to the Tour de France this year.
