Opening Weekend analysis and Deceuninck dominance - podcastHear from Van Aert, Trentin, Hayman, Doull and more
Sagan was the only rider from the race-winning break at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad to make the cut at Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne. Defending champion Stuyven initiated the move as the race approached the final, local laps and was soon joined by Sagan, Matteo Trentin, Luke Rowe and Tiesj Benoot. Despite a heavy load of work in the build-up to the move and four riders up front, BMC Racing missed out completely.
In the final kilometre, Trentin decided to try and go long, but he didn’t have enough gas to take the move to the line. He was quickly brought back into the group before Sagan launched his sprint with 200 metres to go. The world champion did so right from the back of the five-man break and looked untouchable as he drove to the line. Stuyven claimed second while Rowe beat Benoot for the final podium spot.
