Christophe Laporte: I didn’t waste time at Cofidis but I made a great career choice

Christophe Laporte had a dream come true after winning Gent-Wevelgem, but he was not disappointed that his path to a first major Clasico was heavily trampled by his Jumbo-Visma team, and that Wout van Aert rolled out the red carpet.

The pair went 1-2 in Sunday’s rain-soaked 260km race which would have been surprising if not for a distinct sense of déjà-vu. Of course, 367 days ago, the pair crossed the line as equals at the E3 Saxo Classic, and last season they also did it as a trio with Primož Roglič.
