I´m quite disappointed - said Freire - I felt in a really good shape, and I could have easily won because, in the end, I was faster than Boonen: unfortunately, he knows by heart this course, and most of all this finishing part, and I think that´s the reason why I´m only second. He did a really good sprint, he was perfect, and instead I made a mistake: there was a bend in the last few hundred metres, and I couldn´t see that the finishing line was so close, so I started my rush too late. I´ve almost catched him: with a few more metres I could win. Anyways I´m trying to see the sunny side of this second position: I proved that my shape is really good after a not so nice ´Milano-Sanremo´, the team is really strong and thanks to their help I´ll try to win Sunday in ´Gent-Wevelgem´. For ´Tour of Flanders´, instead, I think I´m not one of the forerunners: there are riders that knows that course by heart, so it won´t be easy
