Febe Jooris proud of "unexpected" medal: "I knew the second part was good for me"

Belgium is doing very well in Australia. Febe Jooris’ bronze medal was already the third for our country. And perhaps the most unexpected. Jooris himself is very happy with it: “I don’t realize it yet, I think!”

Jooris, however, started quite conservatively in the 14-kilometre time trial, but that was clearly calculated. “I have a top coach who knew perfectly what I had to do today. He had told me that everything would be fine if I stick to the plan
loved,” explains Jooris.

“At the intermediate point I was 16″ behind Van der Meiden, but I knew that the part after the climb suited me well. I completely died towards the finish. When I crossed the finish line, I immediately heard applause and then I knew it was good.”

This result bodes well for the future. Jooris hopes to be able to specialize further in this work: “In the long run I hope to continue to participate in time trials. The first World Championship time trial for promises is certainly a goal to work towards.”

The other Belgian Xaydee Van Sinaey had a slightly less good day than Jooris. She eventually finished 23rd.

“Whether it was fun? It was especially very heavy, heavier than I expected. I was immediately a bloc. I had a bit of a heavy feeling in my legs, but I gave everything and I am happy,” Van Sinaey responded after her time trial.

“The climb was okay. I found other pieces much heavier. There wasn’t as much wind as the past few days, but I felt it anyway.”
