Kristoff Wins Ghent-Wevelgem and Other Cool News from the World of Cycling

By Monica Buck

Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it. So, what did you miss?

Alexander Kristoff outsprints everyone

The Norwegian pro launched from a perfect position after following the attacking Damien Gaudin and went past him with just under 100 metres to go. No one from the reduced bunch was able to close him down.

Elia Viviani wasn’t able to keep Deceuninck-Quick Step’s winning streak going. Despite being well set up by his team-mates, he finished 19th after being blocked. However, the Belgian team did add another major victory last week with Štybar’s triumph at E3.

“I can’t ask more from my guys. Sometimes you have space and luck, and it’s easy, sometimes you position well and in the end you are out the top 10. I’m disappointed for my team and after missing the chance from last year, two chances gone. It’s full disappointment.”
