Only a Belgian classic can offer all the fine elements of a great race: action-from start to finish, cobbles, rain and mud. Pro-continental team, Wanty Groupe Gobert out boxed some pretty good competition in Flandrien conditions to win it's first race of the season with panache. I love it when a underdog team wins over heavily favored WorldTour teams.
"The race was very hard. In the field, I didn't know if my opponent was stronger. I tried to attack many times but he was able to catch my wheel every time. So I decided to wait till the sprint and I could beat him."
