Wout Van Aert (Crelan-Vastgoedservice) won the GP Sven Nys on New Year’s Day with a classic Sven Nys-like raid. Van Aert won with a bonus of more than a minute on runner-up Sven Nys (Crelan-AA Drink), who waved goodbye to his home race in style. Van Aert also sealed the time-based classification of the Bpost Bank Trophy with his performance on Friday afternoon as second placed Kevin Pauwels (Marlux-Napoleon Games) only managed a tenth place at 2:09 in Baal.
