Dupont wins Kampioenschap van Vlaanderen

by CyclingTips

Timothy Dupont (Verandas Willems) won the Kampioenschap van Vlaanderen in a sprint ahead of Fernando Gaviria (Etixx – Quick Step) and Raymond Kreder (Roompot – Oranje Peloton).

The field sprint was nearly spoiled by Truls Engen Korsaeth (Joker-Byggtorget) who went solo with 6km to go.

The 23-year-old opened a double-digit lead, but ultimately could not ride faster than the sprinter’s teams, led by Etixx-QuickStep, and the gap began to shrink.

Still, at 1km to go, he had a slight margin, but was caught just 120 metres from the finish. However, Etixx-QuickStep’s work was ultimately for second as Gaviria was bested by Dupont on the line.
