Israel Premier Tech:
"We have to see how things go on Sunday but I feel like I am on track and can ride like I did last year (6th place). It's really encouraging that the team has been performing well in the last races, it gives us confidence for Sunday and I think we can play a role in the race."
"Ronde van Vlaanderen is always a highlight of my season, this year even more so after missing it last year. I definitely took a lot of motivation from my performance in Gent-Wevelgem (3rd place) and also seeing how well the team raced, I think we can be confident at the start line on Sunday. I've raced Ronde van Vlaanderen twelve times and I know it's a race where anything can happen so you have to be attentive front the moment the flag drops. Between Dylan and myself, we have two strong cards to play and if things go our way, I think we can get a great result on Sunday."
EF Education Easypost:
"I was coming to Dwars with the ambition to try to win, so it was really nice to be up there. I felt strong over the cobbles, and I could still push pretty hard. I felt fluid and solid, so I hope I can be at the front of these races on Sunday. I am really excited to take it one step further on Sunday.
The courses suit me really well. I don't think I'm just a climber ore one-day specialist. I think I am just good when a bike race comes down to endurance and it is hard throughout the day."
