After a bad start, Sweeck tried to close the gap with leader Lars van der Haar, but he didn’t get much help from Eli Iserbyt and Michael Vanthourenhout.

“They are with two teammates, but they do not take their responsibility”, Sweeck grumbled afterwards. “That’s just really low to the ground.”

“The team game? They forgot that the winner was already gone. If we look less at each other, we participate more easily for the win. If you want to be a champion, you have to take your responsibility.”

That Iserbyt still had a final shot in the final phase, “surprised” Sweeck. “If you’ve been in the wheel all the time, I think you’re winning undeservedly.”

“Course is course and then you can play it hard, but it’s childish how they do it sometimes. He doesn’t have my respect today.”

Eli Iserbyt fell out of the blue when he heard Sweeck’s statements. “The only one who was in the wheel a lot was Quinten (Hermans, ed). “Laurens always wanted to be the first in the sand, so I let him do it.”

“It’s a shame he says that, because I always want to race,” said Iserbyt. “We were the only ones to make a race in Fayetteville, Waterloo and Tabor. Also today was Michael’s first attack and I was the only one trying to get to Lars.”

“Laurens is driving pace, but not fast enough to drive us off. He’s just frustrated that he hasn’t won yet.”

Iserbyt couldn’t help but give out a little jab in turn. “Laurens now realizes how luxurious it was last year in our team, because Michael and I took the chestnuts out of the fire. It is part of the fact that as a leader you have to do a little more than usual.”
