Omloop der Zevenheuvelen

Jasper Dejaegher achieves his sixth victory with Circus-ReUz-Technord

This Sunday, Jasper Dejaegher won his sixth race of the season in the colours of Circus-ReUz-Technord on the occasion of the Omloop der Zevenheuvelen, a race counting for the U23 Road Series on a hilly course around Berg en Dal (The Netherlands). From the first kilometers Dejaegher was on the attack with a group of twenty riders, reduced to only three two laps later.

This trio was never caught and Jasper Dejaegher managed to win solo after attacking under the red flag. It is the sixteenth success of the season for the team of Kévin Van Melsen. Thanks to his performance of the day, Dejaegher is now leading the points classification in the U23 Road Series.

"I surprised myself in hilly races the last couple of weeks, with good results in the GP Color Code and in Herbeumont. Today, I again distinguished myself on a difficult course by breaking away with two other riders in the beginning of the race. I had confidence in my sprint, but when I saw my competitors hesitating with one kilometer to go, I attacked. On the steep final climb of 500 meter I increased my gap to 11 seconds to win my sixth race of the season." "It is incredible to obtain such a series of results, especially knowing that I wasn't spared of bad luck this season. This season, I broke my nose, had a covid infection and I broke my elbow. This shows that the plan established by my trainer Christophe Prémont works. All our efforts are rewarded." "I'm grateful for the opportunities the structure of Intermarché-Circus-Wanty gave me. I already learned a lot, thanks to the professional support we have within Circus-ReUz-Technord and thanks to the fact that there is nearly no separation between both teams. I was invited to race several times with the World Team, learning from my teammates and and from different race situations. Our equipment, training, follow-up, everything is very professional. It is a perfect environment to start a career of professional rider, a dream I hope to realise at the end of the season."
