Ludovic Robeet (Bingoal-Wallonie Bruxelles) and Thimo Willems (Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise) were honored in the flat opening stage between Blankenberge and Ardooie. They attacked one afternoon.
Just before the Golden Kilometer, at 19 km from the finish, they were there for the effort. The explosive riders were preparing for the bunch sprint, but at 4 km from the finish, almost half the peloton went down.
A Sunweb rider tapped the wheel of a colleague from Israel Start-Up Nation. He slid through the peloton like a bowling ball.
Oliver Naesen (knee), Stijn Steels (wrist) and Jenthe Biermans were some unlucky people. Battered they made it to the finish in Ardooie.
There Jasper Philipsen had won. Pascal Ackermann and ex-world champion Mads Pedersen seemed to be fighting for the victory, but after an ultimate jump it was Philipsen who won.
The 22-year-old Belgian booked his 2nd victory of the year, after a stage in the Tour of the Limousin a month ago.
