Silvan Dillier (28) drives through the target. Brakes. Down pours a bottle of water. Wipes the mouth. The words gush – he is mad at Stefan Küng.

A few seconds later Stefan Küng (25) drives in the arrayed field through the target. He didn’t slow down. Travelling in a straight line. In the evening on the phone he is still upset – pissed on himself.

Already during the race, the opinion said

Both of them lose in the first preparation races (E3BinckBank Classic) almost three minutes on the winner Zydenek Stybar (CH). A terrific race shows Neoprofi Marc Hirschi (20). The Youngest in the field is the tenth.

Florian and Küng are far away. “This is not that we go on the paterberg with the persecutors”, escape Dillier. “Ironically, my Amigo has tear.” He said “Amigo” Küng is still during the race. Especially since he had him a short time before in the “column threading”.

debate leading up to Gent-Wevelgem

Yes, Silvan had said something, remembers Stefan Küng. “But I’m mad at me. I was placed on the Kwaremont bad, this should not happen to me. Then I couldn’t close it on the paterberg the hole: I went on the attack and Dilliers team-mate Stijn Vandenbergh increased at the same time, the pace.”

A bad situation, for both have been, says Küng. He will argue with Silvan Dillier on the Sunday before the Start of the semi-classic Gent-Wevelgem. He is sure: “Our friendship will not suffer.”
