Way up on the Kitzbuhler Horn , the feeling of uncertainty took hold in the team car.

The team was in control all day and we had full confidence in our Belgian star rider and the leader of this Tour Of Austria.

Still, there were some reason to be concerned. Because less then 2 km’s into the climb Ben was totally isolated in a 17 Riders group. Our second best climber Awet Gebremedhin , just dropped and could not support his leader.

The expected attacks were coming now one after the other.

But Ben Knew he couldn’t and shouldn’t chase everybody. He was only concerned with the two riders close behind in the GC, 8 and 13 seconds back. “They both exploded at one point so I wasn’t that concerned about the riders in front of me. I knew I still have a cushion to give”.

He was right on. All he had to do is to
Keep them on arms Length. Ben seems to be a better version of the 2018 edition. A more confident rider , a leader in a team that he feel naturally more comfortable in after 18 full months.

When approaching the finish line, he raised his hands and released a relieved smile. He did not need to get the official call that confirmed he won the Whole tour by 20 seconds.

This was his second win in a row. Even sweeter this time around. “I had a tough time with bad luck and a crash injury so this victory means a lot” he said. “To Me and to the whole team . Hopefully, me and the team will have more wins till this season is over”.
