Victories in 2022 – Alexander Kristoff leads Gerben Thijssen to a sprint victory


24. Gerben Thijssen converts luxurious lead-out from Alexander Kristoff into victory in Gooikse Pijl.

« After my first World Tour victory in the Tour de Pologne, I went to the Vuelta with high expectations, but I couldn't defend my chances due to bad crashes. It was a huge disappointment to see weeks of preparation reduced to dust. But fairly quickly, I was able to move on and get back to work with the aim of winning one of the last four classics on my programme. I set the bar high because there were world class sprinters competing in each of them. I finally managed to beat top names like Jasper Philipsen, Dylan Groenewegen or Fabio Jakobsen in the Gooikse Pijl, notably with the help of a champion like Alexander Kristoff. I am proud of the way I reacted after the Vuelta disappointment. My three victories with Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert this season gave me valuable experience for the future. »
