Omega Pharma-Quick Step’s reserves run deep. To complete its eight-man roster for the Tour of Flanders, the Belgian super team has plenty of men to choose from, including today’s Three Days of De Panne winner Guillaume Van Keirsbulck. This afternoon along the Belgian coast, Van Keirsbulck showed he is in shape to help the team's two leader Tom Boonen and Niki Terpstra in Flanders.

"With the win, I hope for a spot on Omega Pharma's team," Van Keirsbulck told journalists at the finish line in De Panne. "It's not a given in such a strong team, but I think that I have shown that I deserve a spot."
