Race 07 June 2024

The Swiss preps for the Tour de France has started excellently for Lotto Dstny. Maxim Van Gils sprinted in Leuggern to win the GP Aargau- the traditional warm-up for Tour de Suisse. "I said at home: if the second part of the season can be half as good as spring was, then it will be good. And look at how it begins… This feels good, of course."

With GP Aargau, Van Gils takes his third win of the season. "I didn't have a super feeling today, probably because I just came from altitude training. It was a tough race, with that climb in every lap. It was also really warm today. But the team did a great job from start to finish. It was a battle to be among the first in that final corner. Pascal (Eenkhoorn) brought me all the way to second position. That was a bit too early, I didn't want to be at the front just yet (laughs). So I let myself drop back a bit. At 200 meters, I really went for it and felt I had a lot left in the tank. Now I have one more day to rest before the Tour of Switzerland really begins. I'm looking forward to it."
