First pro win for Weylandt

Twenty-one year-old Belgian rider Wouter Weylandt (Quick.Step) has recorded his first win as a pro in the kermis in Vichte, Belgium. The sprinter beat Niko Eeckhout (Chocolade Jacques) and Dennis Flahaut (Flanders) in a small bunch sprint.

"In recent weeks, I've had placings one after the other, now there is the victory at last," he told Belga. "Since the Eneco Tour, the condition is quite good. But it just didn't really happen until today. I started this sprint from a long way out, because I wanted to surprise guys like Eeckhout. I could get to the front and kept going full out. Nobody was able to get past me.

"On Saturday, I will ride the Delta Profronde. Maybe I can also take a stage in the Franco-Belge. With this form, it should happen."
