It was a Monument weekend with the Tour of Flanders and we have the tweets to prove it! And once again, the winner wasn’t the rider that most people were talking about. That red and white nat champ’s jersey gives Kasper Asgreen some real superpowers.
Kathi, Midge, Luke and Euan gather round the table to discuss the past two weeks of racing.
- Midge is all in on Kasper Asgreen
- Luke has praise for the mighty Cofidis
- Kathi loves it’s not predictable
- Euan only has eyes for E3
Catch up on the blog!
Kasper Asgreen (Elegant QuickStep) played it cool as a cucumber to take victory at the Tour of Flanders in a tense two-up sprint with defending champion Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix). The pair flew clear with 17km to go and did not give an inch until the Dutchman dropped his head in the last 30m, just as Asgreen drew level in the sprint. Golden Greg van Avermaet (AG2R Citroen) pipped Trek-Segafredo’s Jasper Stuyven for the third step on the podium.
