Immediately a record and an unseen maneuver in The Container Cup

Jasper Philipsen is the first leader in the second season of The Container Cup. The Alpecin-Fenix ​​cyclist set a time of 10 minutes and 16 seconds, which is 25 seconds better than race driver Stoffel Vandoorne.

Race driver Stoffel Vandoorne seemed to be on his way to a tough time, but despite his regular bike rides with Philippe Gilbert in the hills around Monaco, he crouched in the closing bike number. Especially a pit stop to change his saddle – unseen in the Container Cup – took him expensive seconds. “My legs didn’t want to come along at all,” he admitted afterwards. Co-commentator Wesley Sonck nevertheless had high expectations about the Formula E driver in advance.

Vandoorne hit five out of five attempts with the carbine. An achievement in which only Dirk Van Tichelt succeeded in the first season. A record that can be matched for the next five weeks.

Jasper Philipsen is currently in the lead, but with a time of 10 minutes and 16 seconds, he is almost a minute and a half slower than his teammate Mathieu van der Poel, the winner of last season. With his time, Philipsen would have

finished in twelfth place in the first season, between Simon Mignolet and Wout van Aert. With a good cycling time of 3: 57.71 at 3,000 meters, De Vlam van Ham came close to the bicycle record (03: 45.41) of Van Aert and he did better than Greg Van Avermaet, Thomas De Gendt, Yves Lampaert and Remco, among others. Evenepoel last year. Philipsen was left with a streak of sweat in his shorts. That led to a call from Pedro Elias to all men to stop shaving completely. “The hairs in the poo are there to absorb the sweat. Everything finished. And then you have a line. ”
