10 years after Philippe Gilbert’s title, Remco has made all of Belgium proud by winning in Wollongong, after his Vuelta title. To celebrate this with dignity, the Belgians dined in a restaurant before heading to a nearby bar.
If Remco stayed at the soda all evening, his teammates took good care of the bar. “The gin and tonic and the beer flowed freely”tells Stan Dewulf to our colleagues from Sporza.
When singing the victory anthem “We Are The Champions”, we see the fourth of the world championships, Wout van Aert, beer in hand, giving a hug to the French runner Benoît Cosnefroy who came to participate in the Belgian atmosphere. Alongside Remco who was singing at the top of his lungs, Stan Dewulf, Pieter Serry and coach Sven Vanthourenhout provided the backing vocals.
