Tim Wellens takes the silver medal at Belgian Championship time trial
Tim Wellens won the silver medal at the Belgian Championship time trial in Hooglede-Gits today. The pros had to cover three laps of 14.8 kilometers, good for a total distance of 44.4 kilometers. Tim set a time of 56’42”. Only Kristof Vandewalle did better – with sixteen seconds – and that way he won the Belgian time trial title for the third time in a row. Pieter Serry went home with bronze, he finished at a few hundreds of seconds of Wellens.

Tim Wellens: “I didn’t expect this result. I came to Hooglede with top five as my goal. The course was pretty technical, with some sharp curves. There was also a lot of wind. Bart Leysen, my sports director, advised me very well and told me on which parts I definitely shouldn’t let my tempo down. I had the fourth intermediate time for a while, so I was on schedule. My last lap was very fast and so I became second. I obviously got well out of the classic period. Now I’m focusing on the Giro.”
