Girmay extends his contract with Intermarché until the 2026 season.
I'm happy with it, too. Hope that kind of video won't count as pressure, and they are just proud and happy to be able to keep him.That’s great news, Wanty have done a good job managing him and not put to much pressure on him in his first big kid season.
Can we not use 'the real deal' please tennis has ruined it for me.The real deal, Bini Van Girmay.
If he'd beaten VdP I wouldn't even have minded.For sure, really easy to root for this guy. Excited to see how he gets on in this Giro
He raced a bit passively, although maybe he was more tired than he seemed.I think he should have worked a bit more today but he was strong again and I was impress by his last descent as he was the only one that managed to stay with Van der Poel.
His goal was to win the race and he thought marking VdP was the best strategy to achieve said goal.As I said elsewhere, Girmay was more concerned with not letting MvdP get the better of him than he was with winning the race. It was plain to see if you watched the entire race. It seemed his only goal was to finish ahead of MvdP.
And today his education has given him his first win. Tremendous, just tremendous. Wanty will have every DS bugging them, now.So Girmay is oriented towards MVDP, which is smart. Girmay seems to be a similar rider, and also his positioning and bike handling skills seem to be good already.
Since he recently started to like Belgium, and is oriented towards VDP, I dream of Biniam showing up at races like Superprestige Ruddervoorde or X2O Trofee Herentals, next winter season. Imagine someone from Eritrea winning one of such races! As a winner of Gent-Wevelgem, he should have the engine to do so…
