After 270km of racing, a podium of surprises brought a close to the Tour of Flanders 2019. EF-Too-Many-Words’ Alberto Bettiol took the Classics world by storm, soloing to his first ever professional victory. Deceuninck-Quickstep’s 24-year-old Kasper Asgreen, a late addition to the squad, snuck away to claim second while Alexander Kristoff brought home the group of favourites to claim third.
We were in Belgium, we were in Spain. And we had a lot of exciting racing in both. There were some kings of the road crowned.
