Thijssen drives his first big round. Today’s 2nd place, behind Pascal Ackermann, is his best result in the WorldTour. “It went well today. I had confidence in my sprint”, Thijssen said in front of the microphone of the organization.
“The last days were tiring, but today was not too fast. It was an exciting sprint. I hoped for the podium and I succeeded.”
Thijssen, who finished 5th in the sprint victory of Bennett 6 days ago, got the support of his team in the sprint preparation. “Tim Wellens did a super job at 5 km from the finish. This gives confidence for the continuation, we have to keep going.”
“Today I couldn’t finish the job, but why shouldn’t I be able to do that for the next few days?”
“Maybe I went a bit too far, but still I’m happy with the result.” At the end of September Thijssen also became 2nd in the Gooikse Pijl.
Thijssen comes a long way. In November last year he had a heavy crash in the Ghent Six Days. Verdict: broken collarbone, 3 broken ribs and especially 3 small brain haemorrhages. He had to recover for a long time, but is now completely back.
