Much like Tadej Pogacar in Sunday’s Ronde final, I got stared down and boxed in by my relentless work schedule so let’s just pretend that this is going out on Tuesday. We have all the best Ronde tweets, some great photo galleries from the Grubers (as per usual!), baby pictures and much much more.
Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) took his second Tour of Flanders in a doozy of a breathless sprint showdown, holding off Dylan van Baarle (INEOS Grenadiers) and a charging Valentin Madouas (Groupama-FDJ). All three riders outwitted Tadej Pogacar (UAE Emirates) – the man who made all the right moves on the cobbled climbs of his debut Tour of Flanders, only to finish fourth. How, just how???
