21: Adam Blythe Interviews Tiesj Benoot
In the third episode of Adam Blythe Interviews… Adam meets his Lotto-Soudal teammate Tiesj Benoot, the winner in 2018 of an epic edition of Strade Bianche and one of the favourites for his home race, the Tour of Flanders, this Sunday.
The pair were speaking just 48 hours after Ghent-Wevelgem and the day before Dwars door Vlaanderen, where Benoot made the winning move and finished fifth.
A relaxed Benoot tells Blythe about how he started cycling, his win at Strade Bianche, his studies at Ghent University and his hopes for the world championship road race in Yorkshire later this year.
