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.
