Interview of Ross Lamb and Adam Lewis after GP Claudy Sohet - Amay (1.12).

Ross takes the first win of the season for our team ! "With the course being a little bit different it worked out better for me I think than last year, as we took the bell a few riders thought the race was over and one even celebrated but I knew there was still another lap. The bell on the narrow roads through the houses the Sovac guy was just off the front on his own I just rode across to him and then Adam managed to join just as we hit the climb of the circuit, after the hill I had a look around and the gap looked quite good so I attacked, to soften the other rider up so I knew Adam could go over the top and if that didn't work then I knew I was the quickest up the hill to the finish line, Adam almost made it but just as we came to the line I thought he was going to get caught and I'd just managed to keep my gear going that bit longer for the 1-2. My condition has been good since I arrived this year, always made the main break of the races and this was my first real opportunity to take the win. Of course, it's good for the future I know the race in terms of field and distance isn't so big but to win is always the hardest thing to do so hopefully I can keep moving in the right direction and improve throughout the year and into the UCI races"

Adam Lewis (2nd) : "Quite a tough race, I attacked several times in the race but everything was together with 1 lap to go. Me and Ross attacked together with one other with 6 km to go. We got a good gap and we sprinted for the finish with 3. The result is good for the upcoming races, my main goal is Flèche Ardennaise (1.2 - on 6 May) so hopefully the form keeps getting better. Next race for me : Hannut, Monday".
