Just for something different we followed ‘Gent 6’ winner Kenny De Ketele (Belgium) through the World Cup Points race in London, mainly with images but with quotes from Kenny.
” I went into the race without a plan and just let my instincts take over”
“In the first sprint I was in the breakaway, and felt I had good legs”
” I knew if I wanted to win the race I needed to take a lap and I did with four others ”
“I felt really good in the break and felt the others were suffering, so I tried to go alone but when I made the bunch they slowed up and the others got the lap as well”
” The Spanish rider Eloy Rovira Teruel already took a lot of points and he was very strong and deserved the win, and I just concentrated on securing second place, and I did”
“I am happy with my season so far I had a medal at the Europeans and won the ‘Gent 6’ and finish off here with a silver, so now a little break then ‘Rotterdam 6 Day”
“Winning the ‘Gent 6’ was massive for me and my team ( Topsport Vlaanderen) also I live in Gent so that was an extra bonus”
