This is one that matters


Move over Deceuninck-QuickStep

"It's an important and nice victory over top sprinters. Obviously, this is one of the most beautiful one-day races one can win as a sprinter. This is one that matters. That move in the sprint was fantastic. It's the best lead-out in the world that we're professionally flicking here. QuickStep had the numbers and strong sprinters but we didn't look at them. We rode our own sprint. The three of us just tried to find each other. 

I just had to do the final 200 metres. It worked out perfectly. Everything has to go your way and fall into place. Today that was the case. At the end of the race I also enjoyed good legs. That's all necessary to be able to win."

"Very happy, I don't know... A win for the team would be a bit more ideal but just being here at Scheldeprijs, with Deceuninck-QuickStep, makes me happy enough."
-Mark Cavendish
