Two men in the picture on the market in Deinze. Remco Evenepoel started in Nokere Curonian on his first profwedstrijd in Belgium. Mathieu van der Poel started again his first classic spring. The world champion cyclo-cross stood for the start time recorded in the sounding favorites. Defending champion Fabio Jakobsen did not participate, at Deceuninck-Quick.Step were they on Alvaro Hodeg.
a Long time was not waiting on Evenepoel. Our 19-year-old compatriot snapped together with Iljo Keisse work on at the head of the peloton. Deceuninck-Quick.Step took together with Team UAE-Emirates (in the service of philipsen is admitted) the task of the flight of the day to check. Which consisted of Boucher, Offredo, Vergaerde, Journiaux and Fell. The two latter attacked first. For the three others, it was the song sung in 20 kilometers from the finish.
Then it was re-Evenepoel. The double world champion in the junior did just before the absolute finals of his last turns in the service of the team. The family were at that time ready for the passage to the Long Ast and the Huisepontweg in the Lede, the cobblestones by the parcourswijziging this year for the first time a key role were assigned.
