"I stepped out of the Dauphiné already on Saturday. There was one more heavy mountain stage on the programme, with real bad weather conditions. I wanted to save up for today."

The Blanco Pro Cycling Team made a flying start in the Ster ZLM Toer. The team scored a one-two finish in Goes with Robert Wagner and Lars Boom. They were early starters and clocked good times but had the fortune to finish their runs before the rain set in.

 

Wagner was well prepared for the prologue in Zeeland. “I’m a decent prologue rider and therefore I stepped out of the Dauphiné already on Saturday. There was one more heavy mountain stage on the programme, with real bad weather conditions. I wanted to save up for today. It might sound funny, but I exited with a good feeling. I had good legs and today we can see just how good.”

 

Wagner is happy with the win for several reasons. “This is a nice victory, especially with Lars coming in second. As a team we could not have hoped for a better start. For me personally, it’s a great accomplishment as my last win came in 2011 when I became the German champion.”

 

Lars Boom
Lars was enthused about his performance. “Second is nice although I would naturally have preferred to win. I am happy to defer to Robert. I simply did not go hard enough to win but I have to say the legs felt good. This is a good start. I started early on purpose as we knew rain was coming and that was not in our favour.”

 

Wagner also looked ahead. Despite the win, he remains focused. “I know my job. I am going to help Lars to a good classification and support Theo Bos in the sprints.”
