Neo-Pro Maarten Neyens of Team Topsport Vlaanderen only made it 100 kilometres in the E3 Prijs Vlaanderen Sunday, before climbing into the broom wagon to ride out the race in comfort. A little later, the driver stopped at a cafe to let the 23 year-old take an "urgent sanitary stop". But when Neyens came back out of the cafe, he found he had been stranded – the broom wagon had gone on without him.

A helpful fan brought Neyens back to Harelbeke, according to sportwereld.be.
