Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne

Cycling

ByTheMinCycle

Good afternoon all! @TimBonvilleGinn here for the 2nd cobbled of the season! It's very cold but it'll heat up for Kuurne Brussels Kuurne! Only one former winner here in Treks Jasper Stuyvan, aside from that no Sagan or Cav etc. Naesen has had a bad mechanical but he's now back.

Here is what the profile looks like.

From over head it is incredibly confusing.

97km to go! Thanks to Quickstep and this Tweet, you can see who's in the break and who's leading the peloton... 30" gap.

The peloton is just tapping along, they'll be catching the break soon. BMC, Bora and Michelton Scott are on the front now. EF Education First Drapac powered by Cannondale is up there too. 95km to go, 27" gap.

Van Avermaet and Bernoot right up at the front. The break has pulled out a gap to 43" now. 94km to go.

Little bits of ice patches, oh bit of a crash, Burghardt down and hurt at the moment.

It caused a compression and a Sport Vlaanderen rider ended up in a ditch. Boy Van Poppel looks the most hurt for Trek.

Quickstep and Van Avermaet move right to the front as we're about to hit the Oude Kwaremont!!

The peloton has shrank dramatically! Some riders getting back, we start climbing, about to hit the cobbles!
