Hier mal die Meinung des Quickstep Chefs zum Thema Frauenradsport. Krasse Ansage in der heutige Zeit. Allerdings vermute ich, dass er (erschreckenderweise) mit diesem Sinneswandel nicht alleine da steht...
When asked if an investment by a prominent Belgian WorldTour organisation wouldn't help raise the level of the women's peloton in the country, Lefevere was similarly opaque. "What should you start with? You first have to convince those women to become cyclists. I also don't have the experience, time, money or desire to invest if I don't know where I will end up."
Lefevere further demonstrated his lack of knowledge of women's cycling by suggesting no Belgian women made the lead group in the Brugge-De Panne WorldTour race, stating, "If a group of 50 drives away in De Panne and there is no one there... With all due respect, but I'm not the OCMW (Public Centre for Social Welfare) either."
Jolien D'hoore and Lotte Kopecky finished third and fourth, respectively in this year's De Panne. In 2019 and 2020, Kopecky landed on the podium there and D'hoore won it in 2018.
