First win of the season for Vantornout in Ardooie

Nys, Albert trail behind Sunweb-Revor rider

Klaas Vantornout scored his first win of the season in the muddy Kermiscross in Ardooie.

The Sunweb-Revor rider was part of a leading trio that formed early in the race with Belgian champion Sven Nys (Landbouwkrediet) and world champion Niels Albert (BKCP-Powerplus).

Vantornout attacked in the final lap of the heavy course, which played into his running strength, and stormed away from Nys to take the victory. Albert trailed in half a minute later, while Bart Wellens and Rob Peeters (Telenet-Fidea) rounded out the top five after a race-long chase.
