After the disappointment for the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyls in the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, Fabio Jakobsen swooped past the last break of the day with 50 metres to go for the win in Kuurne. Lotto Soudal managed to get second place ahead of Hugo Hofstetter, Daniel McLay and Giacomo Nizzolo.
Stage 16 was a tricky stage for Deceuninck - Quick-Step to control, but in control they were. Their fast-finisher Fabio Jakobsen was even dropped at one point, but they got him back to the front to take the victory. Odd Christian Eiking (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux) held the overall lead.
Second sprint win for Deceuninck - Quick-Step's Fabio Jakobsen, just ahead of Alberto Dainese and Jasper Philipsen. At the end of scrappy sprint, Jakobsen was positioned perfectly by Florian Sénéchal to launch his final burst over the line for stage win and the points jersey. Primoz Roglič finished in the bunch to hold his overall lead.
It was great to see Fabio Jakobsen come back from his horrendous crash in Poland to win a Grand Tour stage. In a messy sprint that saw Arnaud Démare heading for the win, Jakobsen shot out to cross the line first. Red jersey, Rein Taaramäe crashed in the last 3 kilometres, but held his lead.
