Greg Van Avermaet: “I’ve had this in mind since last year”

July 6 th 2019 - 18:14

“Last year when the map of the Tour in Belgium came out, I decided that I’d target to be first atop the “muur”. To have something like that you can reach in your own country is always nice. The atmosphere was great with a lot of people but I still had to go hard on the pedals to be first at the KOM. I was a bit worried about Xandro Meurisse. I’m happy I managed to get the polka dot jersey but I won’t defend it after tomorrow, I’ll focus on the stage win exclusively.”
