Demi Vollering (SD Worx-Protime): “The headwind made such a difference”

May 3 rd 2024 - 18:46 [GMT + 2]

I felt really good today. The final climb was a bit more difficult than yesterday because of the headwind. It made such a difference whether you were at the front or behind someone, and of course it’s way easier to climb on the wheel of someone else. I couldn’t get rid of Évita, so it’s a deserved win for her.

We can’t assume that we are winning the GC, because it just takes a crash or some mishap for everything to be over. My team and I need to stay focused. A strong breakaway can make things difficult, as was indeed the case today with all that headwind on large roads. My teammates put on a quite a remarkable display to control the race all day long. If we stay as focus as we were today, we will for sure bring the Red jersey home.
