Quentin Hermanns not amused: ‘It has nothing to do with sports’ | a trip

Quentin Hermans, 26, does not raise his voice, but he is still boiling with anger on the phone.

Or is there a lack of understanding now that Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert is ignoring him in the Tour de France.

“Was I expecting this?

“It’s not clear why I’m at home. But it definitely has nothing to do with sports. It’s very unfortunate.”

“At first I thought the call was coming to hear about my condition, because we’re leaving tomorrow. And my flight was booked. But there was bad news.”

“I’d advise everyone in the press to ask Ike for a good explanation. I didn’t get an explanation.”

Quentin Hermans repeats it several times: “I don’t think it has anything to do with sports. I think it’s a shame that it doesn’t.”

But what is this? “This was not said in many words, but it was more about the fact that the atmosphere may suffer now that – as it is known – he has moved to another team.”

“I never noticed it myself. I called the team management and they also fell out of the sky a little bit. It wasn’t clear to them either.”

Hermans switches to Alpecin-Deceuninck. So this is the reason. but? “I don’t want to confirm it. He didn’t say it in those words, but 1 + 1 is still 2, right?”

“I’ve always been a rider that they like to work with. I think it’s weird that I would change the atmosphere when I don’t feel like that and I don’t think the other riders are either. They were shocked too.”
