How telling one sports photo can be!
# Wout Van Aert talk of the town

Yesterday's victory in Albi, made Wout Van Aert talk of the town in the Tour circus. He was already known as a great contender for stage victories in the future. But nobody dared to say he would do it already in his first Tour de France.

![43629c2fa73211e9abcc02b7b76bf47f.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/pele23/1TgE3hBa-43629c2f-a732-11e9-abcc-02b7b76bf47f.jpg)
*Picture Source: sporza.be*

Now, this one photograph that was taken just after the finish yesterday tells so much about this victory.
On the left you see Wout Van Aert putting his hands up, and cheering his unexpected but still dreamed of victory. To the right of him, you see Oliver Naessen, fellow Belgian, riding for AG2R with the Belgian flag stripes on his sleeves. His face shows the surprise and admiration for his fellow countryman taking this victory. It is even a bit funny. Oliver and Wout know each other quite well, and therefor there is even a touch of joy in his face, for the victory of his non-team mate.

A bit more to the right, riding for Deceuninck - Quick Step in blue, you see Elia Viviani. His face tells it all. He expected the full breed sprinter Dylan Groenewegen of Jumbo - Visma, but he was dropped by the peleton because the echelon racing that happened. Just over the finish Viviani realised he wasn't beaten by Groenewegen, but by a team mate of Groenewegen, Wout Van Aert. Viviani his face shows the utter disbelief and sadness of this loss. Amazingly beautiful, and I must admit, as a Belgian, a bit funny too (Sorry Elia!).

Then, further to the right, in the back, you see the team mate of Wout Van Aert and General Classement rider, Steven Kruijswijk, cheering for the victory of his team. Utter joy on his face.

How telling can one picture be?

Sincerely,

Pele23

Yesterday evening I did see it on TV and I was also thinking about writing a post about it. But I did prefer to write the post about Genk.
To bad, there wasn't an interview with Viviani!

Maybe we also need to have focus on Kruiswijk on the back of the picture. Van Aert did not only won but also protected the ranking of Kruiswijk. And before he decided to sprint he had ask the fiat of Kruiswijk to go for the victory.
