Nice win for Hermans today. :cool

He doesn't know what is happening yet re: his future.

The Limburger could not tell us much about his future, Hermans is at the end of his contract with Israel Start-Up Nation. “I have left that to my management my entire career and it has never let me down. But if it's up to me, I'd be happy to stay with my current team. I feel very good here and see a lot of pros compared to other teams.”

“I wouldn't know where other teams are doing so much better. Okay, the top teams with a bigger budget may be able to support their riders a little more professionally, but at Israel Start-Up Nation they don't do that badly. The environment in which to perform is also good. There is no great pressure. They can also live with a place of honor. And if I don't ride a prize once, it's because I've had bad luck or I'm sick. They show understanding for that.”

“If I want to adjust my program, they are open to it. No, you don't hear me complaining. Can I end my career there? That's another question. That is always possible. But I'm 35. I don't think a two-year contract is enough. It is always possible, as soon as I feel that I can no longer win races, I stop. But I'm not going to assume that today."

In another interview after today's victory he echoed some earlier thoughts about being happy riding "nice little races" like ARoN and not being overly bothered about riding GTs and chasing a stage win.
