"I don't like racing in the rain but I race very well in the rain. For my results, it's better for me in the rain, so it didn't bother me at all. But here I won in a sprint and that's always a nice feeling.
I actually called Carlo Bomans (Belgain team selector) about the world championships and told him my main goal for the end of the season was the Tour of Lombardy, and worlds was not an ideal preparation for that. He told me he had not planned to call me up anyway."
- Tim Wellens, next assault will be the Tour or Lombardy. My pick for a top 3.
