Westra wins Three Days of De Panne

Lieuwe Westra (Astana) snatched overall victory from Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) at the Three Days of De Panne thanks to gaining vital seconds in the final 14.2km stage in De Panne.

Maciej Bodnar (Tinkoff) won the time trial in a time 17:39.29, beating Tony Martin (Etixx-QuickStep) and Tom Bohli (BMC) by less than a second.

The fight for overall victory was also a nail-biting affair, with technique and speed playing a huge factor in the time trial that twisted through the De Panne streets but also included a long section along the exposed sea front.

Westra finished fourth in a time of 17:42. Kristoff was 28 seconds slower and so slipped to second overall, 13 down on Westra. Alexey Lutsenko (Astana) finished third overall at 16 seconds.

Westra seemed relieved to have won the overall classification after he and Lutsenko failed to win stage 1 when they out-numbered Kristoff two riders to one.

“It feels great to win. I’ve been second a few times and I didn’t want to be second again today,” Westra said, before pulling on the winner’s white jersey and collecting a massive bottle of beer.

“Fortunately I had good legs and also during the three days of racing I had a very strong team behind me. They did a lot of work for me and so I have to thank them if I’ve been able to take the victory this time. I knew that the time trial would decide everything. I didn’t feel great but the time was fast and that’s what counts. It’s great to win De Panne. It’s a great race, an important race. I’m happy to win it.”

How it happened

A total of 107 riders started the final time trial stage, with a dozen opting to end their race early and begin to recover for Sunday’s Tour of Flanders or races elsewhere.

Johan Le Bon (FDJ) did another good time trial after finishing second in the Tirreno-Adriatico final TT in San Benedetto del Tronto. He was fifth fastest and so finished tenth overall. Australia’s Luke Durbridge (Orica-GreenEdge) used his skills to finish tenth, 31 seconds slower than Bodnar but did enough to finish sixth overall. French veteran Sylvain Chavanel (Direct Energie) may now be 36 but he was strong again, finishing sixth on the stage and so fifth overall.

The surprise performance of the day came from 22-year-old Tom Bohli of BMC, who beat all those experienced time trial experts to finish third on the stage, just a few hundreds of a second from victory. He began with BMC last summer as a stagiaire rider but has already shown his time trialing prowess by winning the prologue time trial at Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen in early March.

Maciej Bodnar set a faster time than Bohli but then spent a nervous time in the hot seat, waiting for the other riders to finish. He only began to celebrate when Tony Martin failed to beat his time.

“I’ve lost to Tony Martin by a second in the past and so it’s a pleasure to beat him this time, also because he’s a great rider and former world time trial champion,” Bodnar said.

“I didn’t ride last year but I won two years ago. It’s good to win again and winning like that is extra special.”
