Davide Ballerini wins Omloop Het Nieuwsblad

Davide Ballerini (Deceuninck-QuickStep) took out the bunch sprint to win Omloop Het Nieuwsblad over Jake Stewart (Groupama-FDJ) and Sep Vanmarcke (Israel Start-Up Nation).

Omloop Het Nieuwsblad rarely comes down to a bunch sprint and Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-QuickStep), Greg Van Avermaet (Ag2r Citroen), Sep Vanmarcke (Israel Start-Up Nation) and Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers) were among the attackers that were reeled in ahead of the Kapelmuur.

Gianni Moscon (Ineos Grenadiers) attacked over the climb but was chased down by the dominant Deceuninck-QuickStep who stamped their authority on the first Belgian classic of the season.
