Peter Van Petegem (Davitamon-Lotto), one of the most experienced classics riders still racing and has a chance to win an unprecedented fourth Omloop Het Volk this Saturday. "I know the parcours practically with my eyes shut," he told Sport.be. Van Petegem was not present in Davitamon-Lotto's Het Volk reconnaissance today. "I also know that there have been a few changes in the finale, but I'm not worried about that," he added.

Van Petegem is hoping that he finds himself in a front group that can explode on the last cobbled section. Whether he can win is another question. "I was a bit sick last week, but it wasn't much. Of course I want to win and I have the right teammates around e to make it as easy as possible. The Omloop Het Volk is always nice on a palmares, and yes, I would love to win it a fourth time on Saturday."
