Devenyns wins stage and takes Baloise Belgium Tour lead

by CyclingTips

Dries Devenyns (IAM Cycling) won the third stage of the Baloise Belgium Tour, taking over the race lead. The Belgian bested two compatriots on the line in Baptiste Planckaert (Wallonie-Bruxelles) and Stijn Vandenbergh (Etixx-QuickStep).

“For me this is definitely one of the top results of my career,” he said.

“I saw Marcel Sieberg attack and jumped to follow.” Devenyns then followed a counter by Vandenbergh.

“In the last gentle curve, I tried to jump to go with the last rush. That early jump was the ideal situation for me, because actually Baptiste Planckaert is the fastest, but he was too late.”

Devenyns holds a four second lead on teammate Reto Hollenstein (IAM Cycling) and another three seconds over Vandenbergh.
