Video: Lefevere pleased with Dwars door Vlaanderen outcome

Less than three months into the season and Omega Pharma-QuickStep’s success shows no sign of abating after Niki Terpstra picked up the biggest win of his career at Dwars Door Vlaanderen on Wednesday. As the team’s general manager, Patrick Lefevere, stepped out from his team car at the finish, he could barely hide his pleasure. A total of 19 wins and counting make his team the most successful squad of 2012, and after two disappointing years and no Monument wins since 2009, Lefevere’s men look well-placed to carry their form into the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix.
