Dear VeloVeritas readers,
Tables have turned in Omega Pharma Lotto: we have had some success already in the season.
Three wins is nice for the team at this early stage in the season – two with Phil [Gilbert, the 1st Stage of the Volta ao Algarve and the recent Montepaschi Strade Bianche] and one with André: [Greipel, Stage 4 of the Volta ao Algarve].
André: also bagged third in Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne last week, and so: the team’s moral is much better than last year at this time.
We always heard from journalists and team staff that in 2010 Omega Pharma Lotto only got their second win in mid-May!
That’s pretty amazing when you think about it.
The pressure from the sports directors is off a bit – they’re a little more relaxed, and that makes a huge difference to us.
