April 09, 2014 (Schoten, Belgium) – Marcel Kittel has taken his third win in a row at Scheldeprijs today, asserting his dominance on this sprinters classic. Having targeted this race for a while, the team set about executing the plan of protecting Marcel and riding for a bunch sprint. Everything worked to plan and Marcel jumped with just over 200m to go to take a superb victory, the third of the day so far for Team Giant-Shimano.


Marcel was all smiles after the win, saying: “It really means a lot for me to win here for the third time, especially after a superb job by my teammates.

“I knew that I could go early at the end as we had a tailwind. My plan was to jump 280m from the line and after perfect preparation for the sprint this was made possible.

“We showed today that we are one of the top teams – we stayed calm and finished the job perfectly. I’m really happy.”

Team Giant-Shimano coach Aike Visbeek said when back on the team bus: “Everyone was so motivated to make it three from three today here.

“From the start everyone was really sharp and we knew that we had to stay in control behind the break. The teamwork was spot on again here even when it was a bit of a showdown against the other lead-outs  but the guys got Marcel where he needed to be.

“When Marcel is in the shape he is and can really sprint he is the fastest and he showed that today.”

Canada’s Antoine Duchesne (Team Europcar) finished 62nd while Hugo Houle (Can) AG2R La Mondiale was 103rd working for their respective teams. – ed
