Dorian Godon " A huge work of the team ".
"It's the kind of day where you feel like it's easy because the team does such a tremendous job. I was mentored and protected all day.
Nans Peters rode in front for 90 km, I was led to the sprint like rarely by the whole team and I just had to finish the job. Everything happened naturally, without us having anything to say to each other. We deserved to share the Comté cheese that I won. Three wins this season, a first Tour de France. It's been a great year and I want to continue with the same momentum. I'm going to take a few days off because I feel that some days are more difficult than others and I'm going to prepare for the Grand Prix of Wallonia (September 15) where we'll have another great team."[/su_quote]

Greg Van Avermaet 8th at the top of the Grammont Wall
Greg Van Avermaet took eighth place in the seventh and final stage of the Benelux Tour, which ended at the top of the Grammont Wall.
"I'm really happy with this top 10 after so many weeks without good results. I feel like my form is coming back and that's really good news. Already, on Saturday, I wasn't that bad. I just didn't manage to catch the right group. Today, with my experience and my knowledge of the course, I knew I could do well. I did well in my sprint. Now I can build for the end of the season," said Greg Van Avermaet.
