RTBF star commentator Rodrigo Beenkens looks back on the 2023 season in an interview with Cyclism Actu, and also looks ahead to the season to come. The French-speaking Belgian commentator spoke in particular about Julian Alaphilippe, whom he hopes to see return to his best.he Quick-Step rider could have done better in these races in recent years, were it not for a problem that has been clearly identified here: He has succeeded in his career at the Tour de France, beyond all expectations. But in the Classics… His record on the Monuments is really too little compared to his talent. It’s all a question of choice. Wout Van Aert is in a similar situation. They’re champions, they should be more selfish, says the Belgian commentator. I don’t think we should be asking riders like that to put themselves at the service of others.
