Alec Segaert started his career like a whirlwind, but was unable to freeze his bonus on Lorenzo Milesi (DSM Pro).

“I stand here with a few mixed emotions,” he said after the podium. “I came to win, I won’t hide it.”

“But I did everything I could and 11” is a clear margin. That doesn’t lie in a course like this. The strongest won today.”

Segaert got off to an excellent start. “I started with ambition. In the World Cup, you have to expect a great day if you want to participate. That gave me confidence immediately and I quickly found the Italian in front of me.”

I said earlier: If you get the most out of it and if one person is stronger, so be it. Disappointment will change.

“I knew it was still possible, but I’ve been a little quieter than I had hoped. So I don’t have much to blame myself for.”

“Melesi is also a very strong rider. I’ve met him a few times and he actually beat me in a short time trial.”

“I always keep him in mind and wish him the best. He’s a strong, great driver. I put myself above him a little bit, but he did very well.”

In the end, Sigart himself also realizes that silver is nothing but shame. “I said beforehand: If you get the most out of it and if there’s one person stronger, so be it. Until next year. Disappointment will change.”
