5th in the Brabantse pijl, 6th in the Amstel Gold Race, and Wednesday, 4th in the Flèche wallonne. Results to be in your second year to come home. Bjorg Lambrecht is the revelation of the heuvelklassiekers and that they know at Lotto Soudal. Our young fellow countryman this weekend alongside Tim Wellens and Jelle Vanendert, the third leader of the team. Lambrecht pulled today with his team mates on exploration for La Doyenne. VTM-journalist Merijn Casteleyn was there.
“My spring is already passed. Maybe even my entire year by what happened in the last three races. I am very content with my condition. The results bring some extra attention, but I do sure like to,” said Lambrecht for the camera. The tweedejaarsprof was during the interview bit surprised by Victor Campenaerts. The new werelduurrecordhouder was in the Ardennes to train and stopped for a moment to his team mates a day to say.
But what is expected Lambrecht himself of LBL? “It is a different course than the previous three. With the arrival in the centre of Liège is even completely different. My condition gives me confidence to get back something beautiful to see. Basically, can I use my sprint to wait and see. It is for me a matter of survival and continue to bite. To the Roche-aux-Faucons.”
