Jelle Vanendert felt good, but the cold and rain was problematic. He had to leave the course at the foot of the Cipressa.
Last week, Dennis competed at Nokere Koerse and Handzame (Belgium). He was not fully recovered from his crash in the Tour of Drenthe (Netherlands). In Nokere Koerse he was in the leading group and at Handzame Dennis did an excellent job for his teammates. This week Dennis starts in the Tour of Catalonia (Spain).
