Winning is never boring at all. When the thighs of Roy van den Berg, Harrie Lavreysen and Jeffrey Hoogland are still about to explode, the three of them already have their picture taken. Thumbs up, big grins on faces. With the genuine spontaneity as if it were their first title. But no, these three powerhouses have ruled the team sprint on the track for years. And now here in Roubaix it’s hit again.
The cheers for the French, the other finalist, in the Velodrome of Roubaix are loud. The public hopes for a stunt, but secretly knows better. Of course the Dutch track sprinters win again. World champion for the fourth time in a row. And for this year the hat-trick is complete. After the Olympic Games in Tokyo, the biggest goal of this year by an enormous distance, the world title has now also been won after the European title (two weeks ago).
