Jasper Stuyven: Na­mur Mr Nice Guy

Procycling - - DEBRIEF -

Jasper Stuyven has been one of the one-day rid­ers of 2018, with 14 top-10s so far, and the Bel­gian’s rich vein of post-Tour form yielded his se­cond win of the year atop the cob­bled climb to the Citadelle de Na­mur in Wal­lo­nia. The Trek-Se­gafredo man forced the pace at 25km to go and again at 15km, and though there was some re­group­ing be­fore the fast and tech­ni­cal climb to the ci­tadel, Stuyven’s good po­si­tion­ing on the fi­nal bend and strong sprint eas­ily out­gunned Dim­itri Claeys and War­ren Bar­guil. The French­man, for his part, cel­e­brated his first top three of what has been a dif­fi­cult sea­son.
