FLEEMAN TO RIDE HET VOLK
Britain’s Dan Fleeman has been picked by the DFL team to ride the Het Volk Classic on Saturday. The news came after the whole squad had done a 150km familiarisation ride on the route.
“Nico Mattan told me personally that I was in straight after the ride, so I’m thrilled with that. Thrilled to have made and impression and be in such a big race,” Fleeman told us when he heard the news.
“I’ve also been told that if I do a good job I’ll be in the team for the Three Days of West Flanders,” he added.
When Fleeman did a Ride story with Cycling Weekly around Cannock Chase during the winter, he’d spoken of his hopes to make the team for these big Belgian races. Now he asks; “What was the name of that big Quick Step beast you said whose wheel you said I had to grab then?”
We wish him luck for the weekend.
