2. He’s right, it’s not good.

3. When you’ve already broken away from the peloton and now need to drop a bloke in trainers…

10. Not a happy bunny.

I don’t know what Terpstra wanted to do today at the Gent-Wevelgem, because he attacked to go in the breakaway, but afterwards he didn’t want to work. This is just one example of how you can lose the race against me. What can I do – we’re not teammates – I can’t work for everyone, only for them to beat me in the sprint. I’m not disappointed – I’m more motivated now. If you win all the time, you lose your motivation. Now I’m motivated to take some more wins. We’ll see what happens at Flanders and Paris-Roubaix. Neviem, čo chcel Terpstra robiť. Šiel do úniku, ale tam nechcel spolupracovať. V jeho prípade to bol jeden z príkladov ako prehráte preteky, keď jazdíte proti mne. Ja nie som jeho tímový kolega, aby som mu odtiahol niekoľko kilometrov a potom ma porazí v šprinte? Pre mňa je to ďalšia motivácia. Ak stále vyhrávate, môžete stratiť motiváciu. Ja však teraz motiváciu pre ďalšie víťazstvá rozhodne mám. Uvidíme ako bude po Flámsku a Paríž-Roubaix.
