Dylan Groenewegen (Jayco-AlUla) won the sprint festival in Veenendaal for the fifth time. The Dutch rider pulled away from the opponent with ease. And so Groenewegen extends his stay on the highest scaffold in the one-day race.

The Veenendaal-Veenendaal Classic is known every year as a party for runners. Despite the strong winds today, the fans had to be kept in mind.

Already four-time winner Dylan Groenewegen was the frontrunner. Other nominees include Sam Wellsford (DSM Team), Giacomo Nizolo (Israel Prime Minister of Technology) and Nasir Bouhani (Arcaia Samsik).

Soon a Dutch sextet joined to form the leading group. The lead increased – under the peloton’s eye – by a maximum of three minutes.

At the start of the fifth and final lap, the sprinter teams took control. Intermarché-Circus-Wanty shook the tree several times and let the lead of the leading group fade for half a minute.

The leaders eventually turned into a bird for the cat. Going into the final kilometre, Groenewegen was sitting in a seat when the Alpecin-Fenix ​​train started the race.

The Dutchman dived into the wind with incredible force and put his name on the honor roll for the fifth (!) time. Arvid de Kleijn (Tudor Pro Cycling Team) and Sam Welsford (Team DSM) completed the podium.
