Great collective performance by Roompot – Charles Cycling Team in Le Samyn last Tuesday. Team ROC finished with three riders in the top ten: Lars fourth, Elmar eighth and Jesper ninth. Sports director Michael Boogerd was happy, but would have loved to finish in the top three: “It’s a shame we just outside the podium.”
The Roompot – Charles cyclists definitely showed the team’s colours in the first Wallonian cobble classic of the seasn, Le Samyn. When the peloton burst in different groups, we were still with several riders at the front of the race. In the local laps around Dour they also showed their combative racing style.
Unfortunately without the ultimate prize as a result, Lars Boom came in fourth and just missed the podium. Still, a great team performance! Take a look at the extensive reaction of sports director Michael Boogerd in the video below.
