With a powerful sprint in Veenendaal, Dylan Groenewegen not only gave his Roompot team the second victory in its young history. By taking the win on the same day as Maurits Lammertink opened the account, he proved how much the team has developed since the start of the year, "And that exactly is what makes this victory so beautiful," said team manager Jean-Paul van Poppel. "Dylan is a good example of a young rider who is really making great strides. And he knows to make the team work perfectly for him."

 

That perseverance is one of the most important skills of a rider which was evident in the 30th edition of the Dutch semi-classic.. "During the six ascents of Emma Pyramide in the very beginning of the race I was quite in diffulty. I had just bad legs. But fortunately I survived and the team had constant control over the race," said Groenewegen.

 

The race began with a leading group of sixteen where Sjoerd van Ginneken and Brian van Goethem were with strong men like Kelderman and Kruiswijk. After that breakaway had been brought back at the idpoint, three other riders went on the attack. "At that time we had maintained constant control," said Van Poppel. "The tactic was clear: Dylan was our man today."

 

A flat tire inside the last 15 kilometers seemed to destroy the plan but Groenewegen did not panic. He was brought back by Ivar Slik before Wesley Kreder and Berden de Vries dropped their leader off in the last kilometer. Groenewegen was already in front in the final turn and was unstoppable in the last 350 meters. 

 

"It had to come at some point. I have felt good for weeks and knew it had to wprk out. We have a lot of places of honor with the team, but to win proves that we are getting better and are now ready to take victories."
