The young neo-pro of the Lotto Soudal team brings the team's second victory for 2022. It is also his first victory in the professional ranks.
"I have no words, it's just incredible to take my first professional victory in my third race as a professional cyclist", begins Arnaud De Lie, "The team believed in my chances today. It didn't stress me out, but obviously I wanted to do my best. Thanks to fantastic teamwork, I reached the top of the final climb in a perfect position. Afterwards, my teammates rode everything their hearts to keep me in the front row of the peloton. I was also lucky to have Michael Schwarzmann by my side, who guided me perfectly in the last kilometers. During the sprint, I chose the right wheels I guess and I was able to get my first professional win."
