Bel­gian rider Lau­rens Sweeck (Pauwels Sauzen) won the open­ing round of the Soudal Clas­sics. Be­hind him were the Coren­don-cir­cus pair of Marcel Meisen and David van der Poel. Denise Bet­sema of the Nether­lands tri­umphed in the women’s race. Rud­der­vo­orde Su­per­pres­tige (Oct 28) Mathieu van der Poel was too strong for his ri­vals, mak­ing it three in as many races in the sea­son-long com­pe­ti­tion based in Bel­gium and the Nether­lands. Af­ter be­ing held up at the start and a crash at the fin­ish, GB’S Tom Pid­cock (TP Rac­ing) fin­ished a com­mend­able ninth. Marianne Vos (Waowdeals) was vic­to­ri­ous in the women’s race.
