For his effort Lammertink takes the lead in the best young rider competition.

The 2.6km course was made quite challenging due to heavy rain and cobbled streets. Drucker set the early best time and held the hot seat for more than an hour as the rest of the field took their runs.

The win comes on home soil for the 29-year-old who hails from Sandweiler, Luxembourg.
