Devolder strong

Stijn Devolder (Discovery Channel) was definitely one of the strongest riders in the race, but couldn't quite get himself in the winning breakaway. He initiated a move on the Leberg that grew to eight riders after the Molenberg, but it came to nought with 37 km to go. Even after then, he was very active in working for his teammate Max van Heeswijk. And all this while wearing shorts.

"I'm someone who will gladly make the race hard, certainly when we had three men from the team riding in front. But that didn't work out. Ah well, tomorrow is another race."
