Early in the season, but the Belgians are on point. In Mallorca, Kobe Goossens and Cian Uijtdebroeks (Bora-Hansgrohe) colored the course.
In a rain-soaked edition of the Trofeo Adratx, Goossens felt like a fish in water. Uijtdebroeks seemed to numb and had to pass when Goossens threw himself in the descent.
A group with Belgians Louis Vervaeke and Ilan Van Wilder (Soudal-Quick Step) broke off in the chase. They were joined by Lennard Kämna (Bora-Hansgrohe),
In the peloton, UAE gave chase, but Goossens was able to start the ascending final kilometers with a lead of one and a half minutes. He stood his ground and was allowed to triumph.
Cian Uijtdebroeks could no longer get a podium place, which went to Spaniard Pelayo Sanchez and compatriot Lennert Van Eetvelt. Uijtdebroeks retains its leading position in the points classification, ahead of day winner Goossens.
