While the Telenet-Fidea cyclocross team didn’t race Sunday’s UCI C1 race despite being on the start list, some of the team’s pro men were at the venue, still hard at work and getting dirty.
Quinten Hermans was one of Telenet-Fidea teammates to crack the top ten behind Wout van Aert in Saturday’s World Cup, but after four races in eight days, he and his teammates were ready for a rest day on Sunday.
That rest day came in the form of working the pits for their own pit crew, who was out racing the Masters race on Sunday. Former Masters National Champion Mark Savery and Nationals contender Scott Daubert went first and fourth in the Masters 45-49 race on Sunday, and they can attribute their success in part to a young world class pit crew cleaning bikes and cheering.
How did this come about? David Mable caught up with Hermans in the pits:
“They did the whole week, they worked for us, Scott did the whole summer for us, and getting into training camps with us, working on bike position, so it was a small thing to do, to pit [for] them today and to cheer for them.” -Quinten Hermans
