Finally … the moment of truth had arrived!
They call me the ‘King of Zwift’,
as I was training most of us all
on my spinning bike during our training weeks
for the EY Cycling event.
So now it was time for the real action on the road this time.
We all left EY Diegem Friday morning not knowing what would come our way, although everyone was well prepared, a lot of us didn’t cycle more than 140 km a day, which we would exceed on 3 of the 4 days now, with one stage of even 200 km’s long.
We lived during the long weekend as professional cycling stars, arrived in hotels where our luggage was already in our rooms, no need to check-in, our bikes were cleaned, etc….
As real heroes, we were welcomed in all our offices. Most of them even surprised us so much that we forgot our tiredness.
Our most important goal was to start and finish together in Diegem which we maybe didn’t realize for real due to the unfortunate fall from Niels in Bruges, but in our minds, he was all the time with us during the last day. In this way, we would like to wish Niels a speedy recovery!
Anyway everybody did a fantastic job during the 4 days, stronger riders helped others when needed, everybody was enthusiastic and excited all the time, which resulted in a very strong performance from all of us.
With pride, I can tell you that the complete team achieved to complete the EY Cycling Tour 2021
We would like to thank EY for this fantastic experience, especially Olivier and the supporting partners for the organization, Yente and his Pulso team for the guidance, Marcel from Belgian Cycling for all the technical support, and our PR team for all the logistic support!
