Chavanel told sporza.be after last Sundays Brabantse Pijl: "That I am the first Frenchmen to win Brabantse Pijl? Well,
someone has to be the first one."
Chavanel added: "But we have a great team, we proved that today [the interview was made on Sunday,
"Its cool that I succeeded because this was the first time I started here. Actually I didn't know the
route. But I like bad weather, so that was my adavantage."
"Now Flanders can come, even if that's another caliber."
Chavanel's teammate Nick Nuens said about Brabantse Pijl: "My legs weren't that good, maybe it was
because of the bad weather. I told Chavanel that I would destroy the group and that he should attack."
Nuyens continued by saying: "That Guy keeps on riding and riding. Thats why we call him "la machine."
The stress is completely gone at our team. I think Chavanel and Cancellara are the best men in the peloton."
Nuyens concluded by saying: "Two captains at the 'Ronde'? Why not? I will direct the team but if he
is better than me, he should go for it."
