Deceuninck–Quick-Step Rule the Opening Weekend 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?

Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne

Deceuninck–Quick-Step didn’t triumph in both races like they did last year. However, they were the best team again. On Saturday, they managed to have two riders in the winning group. Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) got the better of Yves Lampaert in the end, but second place is a great result. On Sunday, Kasper Asgreen, got ahead with 30 km to go. And he held onto his advantage. A well-deserved victory for a possible star. A sign of things to come? Deceuninck–Quick-Step mean business again. And so does Stuyven. We look forward to the upcoming races.

In the women’s race, Annemiek van Vleuten made her move at the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad with 17 km to go. And nobody was able to follow. She pledged to be a contender in every race from the start of the season. And she meant it. Congratulations!
