Lieuwe Westra of Team Vacansoleil-DCM wins prologue in Tour of Belgium!


Westra took his first victory in a time trial after finishing on the podium in a number of time trials. He explained after the finish that he normally prefers a longer distance but knew his form is improving. 

Gilbert finished second with only one second difference. With only small differences the general classification can change every day but Lieuwe is the first to start in the black leaders jersey. 


Westra opted for a combination of the FFWD DISC combined with a F6R front wheel where most other Vacansoleil-DCM riders chose the THREE as front wheel.
