A "nervous" New Zealander in Gent

With below zero temperatures delivering their icy greeting to the peloton at the Gent-Wevelgem sign on, Greg Henderson (Lotto Belisol) was doing his best to stay warm in spite of the elements.

Cap pulled down low, a buff up around his face, arms folded, the New Zealander had grabbed as much clothing as he could from his suitcase but he could not keep warm.

"It's just like ice right now," he told Cyclingnews.

Henderson, a key support man for Andre Greipel, was hoping that once he got moving on the bike, the situation would improve, but he remained "nervous".
