In the long strip of sandy stumbled the world champion even, which he is soon to start chasing. Toon Aerts smoke his chance and the Belgian champion brought up front the tempo a bit.
The world champion panikeerde not, however, and the Dutchman, nibbled a few seconds of catching up. Vanthourenhout and Hermans took the kopwerk of Aerts and in no time turned Van der Poel back in front. And the long awaited the world champion not to its acceleration.
