Dehaes wins Nokere Koerse

Van Asbroeck, Bouhanni round out podium

Lotto Belisol's Kenny Dehaes scored his second victory of the week, winning a close sprint over Tom Van Asbroeck (Topsport Vlaanderen-Baloise) in the Nokere Koerse. FDJ sprinter Nacer Bouhanni was third. Dehaes also won the Ronde van Drenthe on Sunday.

The race was animated by a breakaway of 17 riders that emerged after 45km of racing. Among the group were three from Omega Pharma - Quickstep - Iljo Keisse, Gert Steegmans and Julian Alaphilippe, two from Lotto - Belisol - Tosh Van Der Sande and Dennis Vanendert, Salvatore Puccio (Team Sky), Martijn Keizer (Belkin), Daniel Oss (BMC), Yves Lampaert (Topsport Vlaanderen), Jerome Baugnies (Wanty Groupe-Gobert), Omar Fraile Matarranza and Luis Mas Bonet (Caja Rural), Jean - Marc Bideau (Bretagne - Séché Environnement), Jan Barta and Michael Schwarzmann (NetApp-Endura), and Niels Van Dijk (Verandas WIllems).

The leading group built up a maximum lead of three minutes, but fell apart at the start of the last lap.

Steegmans was the last survivor of the breakaway, trying desperately to hold off the sprinting peloton, but he fell just shy of victory, finishing a disappointed fourth behind the podium trio.

The mountains classification was won by Alaphilippe.
