A little shout-out is in order to Gilbert, who will be riding his final LBL tomorrow, the monument in his own region, which he won once. His name will be written on La Redoute seventy times.
Last LBL tomorrow for Gilbert and Valverde, these two big stars who loved „La Doyenne“ more than anything else… I‘m sad, indeed.

Gilbert will want to finish tomorrow, and avoid a DNF. He will be celebrated all race long… :)
I only believe that Gilbert actually retires after this season if he doesn't show up for La Marseillaise & Omloop in 2023 with FDJ, because Madiot convinced him about "One final season as an instructor for the young talents and then you become a director sportif, because I can't do this job forever!" :D
