The Tour of Flanders came up to all expectations, but 'The Big Three' of Mathieu van der Poel, Wout van Aert and World champion Julian Alaphilippe were usurped by Danish champion, Kasper Asgreen. Spencer Martin breaks down Sunday's De Ronde pedal stroke by pedal stroke.
Kasper Asgreen won the 105th edition of the Tour of Flanders. The Deceuninck - Quick-Step Dane surprisingly beat defending champion Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) in the final sprint - Man-against-man. Greg Van Avermaet (AG2R Citroën) was third.
Ed Roadside in Belgium: From the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on Saturday, Ed's gang of 'Race Chasers' moved a little down the road for the second race of the Belgian opening weekend - Sunday's Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne and more cobbled action. A stunningly dry day for a northern Classic, but that wouldn't 'dampen' the atmosphere.
Race Report: Kasper Asgreen (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) dominated the finalé of the week-end's second race - Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne. The Dane broke away with Boris Vallée (Bingoal-Wallonie Bruxelles) with 12 kilometres to go. Two kilometres later Asgreen was solo and heading for victory, holding off the baying pack on his heels.
