Joris said: “I’m happy with my first podium of the season! I hoped to stay in Lars’ wheel but after he had a small gap it wasn’t possible to catch him again. I was trying to go for that second spot but Corne is Lars’ teammate so he was not riding, which was understandable. He came in first on the last straight and I couldn’t hold him in the sprint. I’m happy that I’m okay again after last Sunday and looking forward to the next races.”
