Stan Dewulf : « Happy with my condition »
«I returned to racing at Tour de Wallonie after having not raced since June 20 at the Belgian Championships. I did do a three and a half week training camp in Livigno (Italy), but I still did not expect to have this condition after such a long period of training. I finished this Tour de Wallonie only 4 seconds from the overall victory; it’s a little and a lot at the same time! I might have needed a harder stage to try something, but that’s it. It’s motivating for the rest of the season. I will participate in the Arctic Race of Norway (August 5-8) before the Vuelta a Espana (14 / 08-05 / 09). This will be my second participation in a three week tour. I hope that it will help me to be in good shape for the end of the season events, especially Paris-Roubaix.»Stan
