Shock! Nairo Quintana reveals he continues career as professional rider and does not retire
As the race approached its final stretch of 40 kilometres, the gap between the breakaway group and the main peloton began to decrease. Only Eekhoorn and Healy were able to maintain their lead, but it had shrunk to just 50. Alaphilippe was leading the peloton in the pursuit.
The breakaway was finally caught well before the finish line. Louis Vervaeke attacked, but Rui Costa and Healy brought him back to the group. Rui Costawas the fastest to cross the finish line and took the top podium. Louis Vervaeke finished second. Ben Healy satisfied himself with bronze.
"Last year he won 2 times, the years before 3 and 4 times. I didn't take him into the team for that"- Lefevere had a chat about Alaphilippe
