Team Wanty-Groupe Gobert - GP Scherens: Dupont on the podium

GP Scherens: Dupont on the podium

The GP Jef Scherens (1.1, 16/09) was a special race for Timothy Dupont. The 30-year-old Belgian defended his title in the streets of Leuven. The fast race was animated by a breakaway of five riders. In the final a lot of accelerations made the race hard, but Wanty-Groupe Gobert never lost control. The team, with Andrea Pasqualon as last man, launched Timothy Dupont in the sprint in an exemplary way. Stuyven and Van Genechten were able to pass Dupont, who finished on the podium as third.

Timothy Dupont:

"The team delivered an excellent job once more! It was a tough day since the pace was high all day. It was my third race day in a row after Koolskamp Koers and GP Impanis. I missed some freshness. I had to start the sprint a little too early. Jasper Stuyven was ideally positioned in my wheel, so I knew it would be tough to win. I gave everything I could and have to be satisfied with third place. Next up for me are more Belgian one day races, starting with Omloop van het Houtland on Wednesday."
