A Day to remember.

The broad smile on the face of Ben Hermans reflects plenty of relief.

Sure, he ended up the day in great shape - Maybe the best positioned climber going into tomorrow ( Friday) Queen stage .

But it was mostly relief , knowing pretty well that those series of Gravel Sections that stole the show today in Adriatica Ionica - could have cost him big time: A flat or a crash, could have ended it all alI.

“I felt pretty good all day but luck was on my side” he humbly said.

But luck is a teammate of a great rider and Ben looks to be in a zone right now. When approaching the last 40 km’s, he was able to stick with a a group of strong riders and taken more then a min gap.

The great news for him: Some of the riders he distanced were climbers that would compete with him tomorrow for the stage and maybe the whole race.

Advantage - Hermans.

But of course, he will have to show tomorrow how good he is in the 204 km top finish stage. “I Looking forward” he said.

His teammates that were able to protect him today will have to control the race tomorrow. So the work cut us for us.
