Gilbert wins final stage of Tour de Luxembourg

Lammertink takes overal victory

Philippe Gilbert (BMC) claimed victory on the final stage of the Tour de Luxembourg, adding to his victory on stage 2. Race leader Maurits Lammertink (Roompot-Oranje Peloton) finished second, doing enough to keep hold of the jersey and secure the overall victory. Dylan Teuns (BMC) rounded out the top three, finishing one second behind Gilbert and Lammertink.

Just nine seconds behind Lammertink at the start of the day, Gilbert was one of many riders to launch attacks in the final kilometres of the hilly finale. He pulled out a small gap, which was just enough to take his second win of the week. However, Lammertink was wise to Gilbert, and he chased the Belgian down to take his first win of the season.

The final stage of the Tour de Luxembourg took in seven classified climbs including four ascents of the Pabeierbierg on the finishing circuit. The day was marked by a five-man breakaway, which included Andre Greipel (Lotto-Soudal), Eduardo Sepulveda (Fortuneo-Vital Concept), Preben Van Hecke (Topsport Vlaanderen), Jérôme Baugnies (Wanty-Groupe Gobert) and Pirimin Lang (IAM Cycling).

The escapees had as much as eight minutes advantage over the peloton before they were reeled in. Once the peloton began working together, those eight minutes disappeared very quickly and with 35km to go that had dropped to just over two minutes. As they approached the finishing circuit, their lead had all but evaporated, and they would quickly be absorbed by the pack.

The catch initiated a series of attacks, but the pace was too quick for anything to stick for very long. The high speed had a knock on effect in the peloton, as it split into several groups over the undulating course. Gilbert and Lammertink were one of the few that made it into the front group, with the Belgian outpacing the rest and winning the stage.
