Promise Lennert Van Eetvelt has completed his time trial at the World Cup in Australia. He started very well, but gradually had to give up more and more time on the Dane Carl-Frederic Bévort. Shaking his head he crossed the line, he was not satisfied. Remarkable: the national coach accompanied him with a loudspeaker, Van Eetvelt did not wear earphones. You hear him giving tips and encouragement all the time.
“You are at the same time as Lampaert”
Lennert Van Eetvelt started out like an arrow from a bow. Before the first intermediate point, he was told that he was doing as well as Yves Lampaert, who finished ninth in the World Championship among the pros. (Video above.)
National coach encourages at the second intermediate point
On the climb to the second intermediate point, national coach Van Eetvelt shouted up: “Nobody can drive as fast here as you. Another 50 meters, hop, hop, hop.”
Lennert Van Eetvelt finishes just under a minute behind the Dane Carl-Frederik Bévort, at that time the leader.
