I'm really glad for Lucinda Brand. She had been close to the title quite a few times. Now she's got her reward for tenacity.

This course is so special, I'm fond of it.

Erwin is still very fit. The small bridge in the hippodrome is one on which he was World Champion (most probably the last title in Hooglede Gits).

He thinks that the beach section on hard sand will be crucial because at 3pm it will be high tide and depending on the wind, the water could come three meters further on the course. The second beach section after the short passage on the seafront, is hard. They would get into it at 40-45kmh and he thinks the best riders could make it to the bridge on the bike.
