At Alpecin-Deceuninck they can only be satisfied with the season so far. After Milan-San Remo, the Roodhooft brothers’ formation now also won the Tour of Flanders. Or how to silence your critics!

Jasper Philipsen and Mathieu van der Poel are stringing together victories this season. The ‘Flame of Ham’ won with Milan-Sanremo and Brugge-De Panne, MVDP won the E3 Saxo Classic and the Tour of Flanders.

Don’t drop any stitches

Team boss Christoph Roodhooft was particularly satisfied with the way his team worked together in the major races. The riders of Alpecin-Deceuninck solved a lot of problems for their leader and that resulted in a particularly good victory in the Tour of Flanders.

“We thought from our own strengths. We also knew how the other teams would do, because it had been discussed extensively in advance. But we formed our own plan.” said Roodhooft Sporza.

Question marks

“In our country we have a battery of analysts and columnists and in the long run it becomes difficult for them to come up with an original approach. It is a shame that our team was questioned like this,” Roodhooft continued. “Look at the 7 names with us. Fortunately, other people had a good look at it. The race has proven that we were strong enough.”
