Tim Wellens and UAE Team Emirates celebrated a big victory as the Belgian rider took home an impressive overall title win at the Renewi Tour in Bilzen today.
Matteo Trentin was 2nd on the final stage in a very close reduced sprint behind Matej Mohoric (Bahrain-Victorious) after putting in some good teamwork in the final kilometres to control the race.
Wellens : “This week we came here with the ambition to win the race. It worked out perfectly in the end. I knew that both the TT stage and the following day in Geraardsbergen would be critical so I really focused on those. We succeeded in the end – my teammates helped me perfectly. It’s a world tour race so it’s very important for me and for the team also. I’m looking forward to heading into my final goals of the season in good form.”
