Albeit Niki Terpstra has impressed everyone with his remarkable winning stance at Tour Qatar time-trial yet he is tad surprised at outriding cycling legend Sir Wiggins at the race- who he thought would “beat everybody by forty seconds”.
Sir Wiggings was undoubtedly a top favorite for the time-trial stage 3 time-trial at Qatar Tour, as per the winner & new overall lead Niki Terpstra from Etixx-QuickStep. But, everybody was kind of shocked to find the legendary 2012 Tour France champ settling with the 3rd position, behind Fabian Cancellara & Niki.
“I am really surprised”, stated Terpstra in his leader’s precious gold jersey.
“It was yesterday only that I was confident about Wiggins out riding all of us within 40 seconds only”, he continued. He remarked that he was pleasantly surprised to beat the legend.
