Laurens De Plus wins 2019 BinckBank Tour

Laurens De Plus (Jumbo-Visma) snatched overall victory at the BinckBank Tour from Tim Wellens (Lotto Soudal) after going on the attack in the final circuit of the Muur of Geraardsbergen.

De Plus surged away with Greg Van Avermaet (CCC Team) and Oliver Naesen (AG2R La Mondiale) just before the cobbled Bosberg climb after the Muur had made a first selection. Wellens was isolated and unable to go with the move, with De Plus also sweeping up seven bonus seconds in the late Golden Kilometre sprints.

De Plus started the stage just 12 seconds down on Wellens and then gave his all in the final, hectic pursuit match to the finish, gaining enough time to win the WorldTour stage race.

Naesen was the strongest on the climb up to the finish on the lower slopes of the Muur, coming past van Avermaet close to the line after his close friend and training partner led out the sprint.

De Plus finished four seconds behind but was 38 seconds ahead of Wellens, who finished in a chase group. That meant De Plus won by 35 seconds, with Naesen also moving up to second place overall. Wellens slipped to a disappointed third place overall at 36 seconds. Van Avermaet moved up to fourth at 37 seconds, with Marc Hirschi (Team Sunweb) slipping to fifth at 44 seconds.

The 23-year-old De Plus has become a valued stage race domestique since turning professional with QuickStep in 2016 and finally took his first professional at the Binckbank Tour. He movingly dedicated his victory to close friend Bjorg Lambrecht who died recently after crashing at the Tour de Pologne.

"It was a really hard week for me because of what happened to Bjorg," De Plus explained.

"I was doubting about starting here because he was a good friend. It was some tough days, but I'm happy to honour in some way. He was always on my mind and with me in this race. This is for him."

Like a Flandrian Classic

The final 178km stage was a like a Flandrian Classic, with three climbs of the Muur and a series of other short, steep climbs, mixed with cobbles and country and town centre roads and corners.

Wellens started the stage under pressure but he and Lotto Soudal were not expected to let victory escape them.

A 15-rider early break forced a high pace and other attacks but the race came back together for the final 25.6km Geraardsbergen lap, as the legendary climb twisted up to the chapel.

Wellens was there but did not react soon after when first Naesen, then De Plus and finally van Avermaet went on the attack. Wellens was perhaps marking second placed Hirschi, with other teams perhaps hoped Deceuninck-QuickStep would lead the chase. However the trio quickly joined forces and worked together to create a gap.

De Plus gave his all and was riding for overall victory, with Naesen and van Avermaet targeting the stage victory and a podium spot. It was a perfect combination, with Naesen going on to win the stage and land his first victory of 2019.

"It's a relief and I'm very happy because I hadn't won this year. For a rider like me, it's painful not to win, so I'm very happy I did it today," Naesen said with a broad smile.

Wellens had to climb on the final podium with De Plus and Naesen but couldn't hide his disappointment.

"The goal was to fight for Bjorg of course and go for the stage victory and the overall classification was looking super good this morning," Wellens said, thinking of his teammate.

"On the final lap it all slipped away when De Plus, Naesen and van Avermaet attacked. I tried to close it but I didn't have the legs anymore. They worked well together up front and it was difficult to get them back."
