Arnhem - Veenendaal, 198.5 kilometers

Dylan Groenewegen is first across the line

The Race: Here's the story from winner Dylan Groenewegen's LottoNL-Jumbo team.

Dylan Groenewegen, profiting from a strong LottoNL-Jumbo lead-out, grabbed his eighth victory of the season today by sprinting ahead in the Arnhem-Veenendaal Classic.

“I saw a very strong team today and Dylan Groenewegen delivered a phenominal final kick,” Sports Director Merijn Zeeman said. “Our race was based on the aim to put Dylan in the right position, but we had to carry the race, as well. We wanted to mark every group of riders that escaped and we succeeded a few times. We were able to control the race eventually with Twan Castelijns and got some support from other teams.

"In the final part of the race, the road was broad and we had a lot of space. We worked on our timing a lot, this season and today, it went well. We came through the final turn as first and second and when Dylan is in shape like this, not many riders are able to beat him in that position.”

Dylan Groenewegen was very laudatory about his team-mates. “I was led out very well,” he added. “That’s why I was able to finish with this difference and that gives me a lot of confidence. A bunch sprint is always chaotic, but the timing was perfect, today. It felt good that we were able to take the lead in the final kilometre. Robert Wagner came through the final turn in first position.

“This was my eighth victory of the season,” Groenewegen continued. “That’s a great feeling. Especially when you win in a way like this, with such a strong team around me. Winning is the most beautiful thing. It went well with our sprint team.”
