Devenyns wins Baloise Belgium Tour

Zico Waeytens (Giant-Alpecin) won the fourth and final stage at the Baloise Belgium Tour. The Belgian sprinted to victory ahead of Daniel Mclay (Fortuneo-Vital Concept) and Tim Dupont (Veranda's Willems Cycling Team).

"I am delighted with my first victory," Waeytens said. "The plan for today was to set up the sprint for me. It was raining all day and the guys did an awesome job to protect me.

"In the sprint finish, I was feeling confident and really strong. It was a tricky finale, therefore we had to be in the front and we managed this in a good way. The guys brought me in a good position and the lead-out was perfect. Then, I gave it all to finish and it is nice to win the stage after a difficult couple of days. We raced perfectly together. I think this is a victory for the whole team and I'm really happy about it."

Dries Devenyns (IAM Cycling) won the overall classification, sealing the title ahead of his teammate Reto Hollenstein and Stijn Vandenbergh (Etixx-QuickStep).

The stage started with out Lotto Soudal. The team collectively decided to sit out after their rider Stig Broeckx was airlifted to hospital during stage 3. He was involved in a crash that was sparked by two motorcycles and his injuries include two bleeding spots in his brain, a fractured eye socket, and he is in a non-induced coma.

The race started with an early breakaway that formed under rainy conditions, and it included danger man Tony Martin (Etixx-QuickStep). Giant-Alpecin did not have a rider in the move but fortunately it came back in time for the team to set up for a bunch sprint for Waeytens.
