Demi Vollering (SD Worx): "It’s super special to win all three [Amstel, Flèche and Liège]. You can see with Tadej Pogacar [who had to abandon the men’s race] it’s a very thin line. I’m super grateful for the whole team, for how we raced and that I was able to finish it off. We’ve had a good flow since Lotte Kopecky won the Het Nieuwsblad and we stayed on a winning cloud. Normally, I don’t feel too much pressure but I was pretty nervous today. I did not sleep well last night, I was just thinking about what I needed to do. Then you try to tell yourself to keep calm. I was nervous again before the last climb but once on the climb I forgot the nerves and I was on the flow again. Last year, before the Tour de France, I switched to Anna [van der Breggen] as a trainer. She really motivates me to learn about myself. Sometimes, when I have a question, she tells me: 'I think you already know the answer.' I may be looking just for confirmation and she pushes me. And you see now I trust what I’m capable of in the races."
