Welcome back Jürgen! Roelandts 4th in comeback race

Today Lotto-Belisol's Jürgen Roelandts raced his first race since his horrible crash in the Tour Down Under in late January. In de Heistste Pijl (the arrow of Heist, or Heistse Flecha if you will), Roelandts bridged to a three man breakaway, but didn't managed to beat them in the end. Still, fourth after four months of inactivity is not too shabby. The race was won by Katusha's Maxim Vantomme.

"I did not expect it to go so well", Roelandts tells Sporza. "I had done my work, but you always have to wait to see how that work pays off. But, at least the future looks bright." He talks some more on the Sporza website, if you are interested in that.
