What a champion Wellens is!

Always racing hard to create his own luck in the races instead of waiting around for a meaningless GC position. Looking forward to see him taking a second one just like Gilbert did last season. On a side note, Italy always gives back to the attackers, Giro is the best :)
 
Lame celebration, poor music taste but genuine good guy. :)

Planning to live in Wallonia on top of the Côte de Cherave (that's where he attacked in the Arrow, didn't he?), bought a land to build there. We, Walloons, surely will welcome him heartily. Limburgers have always been closer to the Walloon land than Flanders or Antwerpers. :)

He's a true allrounder, good in the hilly classics, a great stagehunter, great on cobbles (won Eneco twice) and he finished 9th in the brutal Monte Gtappa MTT.
 
I'm so glad he cracked hard on the Paris-Nice MTF this year. If he top 10'd or so there, he might have started to really believe he could be a gt rider in the future and went on sacrificing anything for that. Wasting maybe 2 or 3 years in the process to eventually find out that gt's are not made for him after all.

Now he quickly realized he's a 1-day racer/stage hunter in gt's/contender in 1-week stage races. And what a joy he is to watch in these races _O_

Everyone was talking about the hardest day in their life on a bike.
What did Wellens say "In the end I got slightly cold".

This guy.... :eek:
Lol, he's one of the most entertaining bike riders in the world, that's for sure.

Wellens always wins in epic fashion :)

He's reaching peak form for another Eneco Tour I see :p
Sadly the route is flat to accommodate the sprinters for Qatar... There's also a TTT and flat TT. There's no Ardennes stage as far as I know.

Seriously? What a BS decision. The Eneco parcours of the last few years was perfect. So now there going back to the Tony Martin *** show?

Oh yeah I looked up the route it's pretty bad indeed. What a silly decision, the last few editions the Eneco Tour was one of the best stage races on the calendar. :(
