Kittel: “Schoten feels like my living room”

“I am proud of my victory, the team did an excellent job. It was a wonderful day; who can claim that he has Tom Boonen as  his helper ? I am always glad with a victory but the Scheldeprijs is one of my favorite races, it feels like coming home “ according to Kittel.

“The Quick Step team was too strong”, Elia Viviani explained. I was well placed in Kittel’s wheel but I was unable to pass him and I also was held up somewhat by Ackermann. Viviani has not yet smelled the victory this season but there is no reason to be nervous, there are still plenty of opportunities to come he stated confidently.

Bouhanni was less satisfied with his third place. “I was too far in the back of the pack and needed to spend too much energy to just get in a good position for the sprint” he explained.

The Scheldeprijs confirmed it’s fame as the “unofficial world champion ship of the sprint” and it did get it’s  deserved winner in Marcel Kittel.

Viviani: “Most of the times I finish after Quick Step”
