A three-way battle or a debate with at least 4 candidates?

That last scenario was immediately thrown in the trash, because course designer Thomas De Gendt, like all the rest, did not appear in the piece.

With Victor Campenaerts, the other local had already understood after the first of 3 loops that this BC was more about the legs than about course knowledge.

A duel was drawn, with Yves Lampaert who had started like a madman.

But after one third Remco Evenepoel had already exchanged his limited backlog for a tiny bonus.

It was a clear indication, for the youngster’s eyes were spitting fire.

Although Lampaert rode a very flat time trial, no one could compete with this Evenepoel at cruising speed. At each intermediate point he deepened the chasm.

After a bronze and silver medal, there is now gold for 22-year-old Evenepoel.

Team mate Lampaert came in 2nd at 36”, bronze went to Campenaerts at 1’33”
