Great day for Belgian Track cycling at the European junior & U23 championships



Lotte Kopecky won the women's U23 Point Race, Gerben Thijssen was 3rd in the men's junior race. Junior Ayrton De Pauw (what a name) and U23 Nick Degrendele are qualified for the semi-finals in the sprint.

    Gerben Thijssen got a silver medal in the Madison and a bronze medal in the Point Race at the U23 Euro championship in Montichiari.

    Three weeks before he underwent a shoulder injury. The orthopedist had advised him rest till end August.

    A few months ago he contracted the Lyme disease which forced him to follow a strong cure of antibiotics and of course stop competing.

    He'll race next ear for the U23 Lotto Soudal team. "For me, the dream team". He put the other offers aside right after Lotto contacted him. He will get the chance to combine track & road there.  ;)

    (Belang van Limburg)

    In his first paticipationi at a World Cup event, Robbe Ghys won Gold in the scratch and did a great performance in the team pursuit.

    He was very much surprised but in a scratch race it can get any way. It's just like a normal race in which you need to be first on the finish line.

    He's long raced in a losing position but with 22 laps to go his group managed to get back and then he stated to believe in his chances. He attacked and Russian Piskunov and Portuguese Oliveira went along but he knew them a little and knew that in the sprint he can handle them but they still had to hold off the bunch. They managed to do it and indeed he was faster than his two breakaway mates.

    He's also very proud of his performance in the team pursuit. He managed to consolidate his place as starter. As starter you are expected to go all out for 1.5 lap. You need to blow up immediately. Not everybody can do that.

    Next week he races the Sixes of Ghent "among the real big men", partnering Christian Grasmann, winner of the Six of Bremmen with Kenny De Ketele last February and 2nd in the Sixes of Rotterdam.

    I'm super happy to have him as partner and with him i'm going to learn a lot. That's mostly what I want to do in those Sixes.

    That is an excellent, excellent partner for an up-and-coming trackie. Lots of experience, knows how to ride a Sixdays not only for the win, but also for a 'minor' placing (I don't think they can compete with the top pairs in Gent), giving his all, and a bit of a joker as well, always in a good mood - I think motivation plays a major role in a six-day competition. The two riders need to be ready to bury themselves for one another.

    They will be interesting to follow. :cool
