The last Belgian to win La Doyenne was the late Frank Vandenbroucke in 1999. Ten years later he died in Senegal but Gilbert felt the spirit of VDB during his race today. "I was close with Frank and on Friday his mother said Frank would ride with me and support me in the race. I'm proud to follow on his footsteps," Gilbert said.

very nice from gilbert.more respect from my part.with his explosive accelerations he resembles the legend VDB.

I'm happy for him, winning the home race is what he deserved.
Now he should take a break and then go to the Tour, it should be useful in the preparation for Clasica San Sebastian :D :rolleyes:

So basically VDB won Liege for the second time today. Now that's a true legend.
