Terpstra Takes Second Samyn!
PeloPics: After coming away with an empty bag from the weekend, it was up to home giants, the Quick-Step Floors team, to make amends in the semi-Classic Le Samyn on Tuesday. The Dutchman put in a big attack for his second Le Samyn victory, holding off Damien Gaudin (Direct Energie) who towed Philippe Gilbert to second place giving the men in blue first and second place.
