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.
They came, they rode, Terpstra conquered – it was the 2018 Ronde van Vlaanderen. It was divided opinions about the new champion; the world champion weighed in; a future champion was born; the pay gap was enormous – and Captain Kirk forgives no man. That and much much more in the Ronde edition of TWEETS OF THE WEEEEEEEEEK!
