Philippe Gilbert wins 2017 Tour of Flanders - Video

Belgian Philippe Gilbert proved again in 2017 that he was back to peak form when he claimed that year's Tour of Flanders, leaving just Paris-Roubaix and Milan-San Remo as the final cycling Monumnets to pick. (He'd eventually add Roubaix in 2019 - ed.)

Gilbert, resplendent in the Belgian champion's jersey and riding for Belgian powerhouse team Quick-Step Floors, soloed across the line in Oudenaarde after dispatching Greg Van Avermaet (BMC Racing), Niki Terpstra (Quick-Step Floors) and Dylan van Baarle (Cannondale-Drapac) from a select final group.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
