Ku­urneBrus­sels-Ku­urne Bel­gium

Procycling - - Gallery - Im­age:Tim De Waele

Jasper Stuyven is alone ahead of the ield in Ku­urne-Brus­sels-Ku­urne. The Bel­gian, who'd crashed while in hot pur­suit of the win­ning break in the pre­vi­ous day's Om­loop Het Nieuws­blad, at­tacks from a select 16-rider group with 17km to go. With those riders not or­gan­ised enough to chase, and the pelo­ton leav­ing it too late, Stuyven has given him­self enough of a chance to win. Lotto, Ka­tusha and Orica be­lat­edly lead the chase, while Stuyven's Trek team-mates dis­rupt the pur­suit. The Bel­gian rider is re­lent­less, how­ever, and he holds o f the bunch by 17 sec­onds for his irst ma­jor one-day win, to add to the Vuelta stage he took as a neo-pro in 2015.
