Keisse and Morkov started the final days as leaders and overcame multiple attacks to seal the win, which is Keisse's sixth overall in Ghent and the 25th six-day win of his career.
“I’m really happy about this victory” Keisse said. “It’s a race that I love and I have a special feeling with the public. They really pushed me and my teammate today. Morkov was great. We worked really well together the whole week. He is very strong. He has a great technique and tactically he knows how to do it.
“Everything went well, and finally I can celebrate again a victory after two second places in the last two years. That’s a nice moment for me. I started as a cyclist here at T’Kuipke. This track is really magic.”
