The Belgian champion fell in the way. “It was a stupid fall, like any other,” Van Aert said. “They just felt really hard for me. Suddenly I ran so hard and had a delayed reaction. Before I knew it, I was on the floor. Thankfully I didn’t get much damage. It looks worse now than I thought, but it wasn’t really painful for the rest of the day. It’s going to be rough A bit, but it’s just scratches.”

After that, Van Aert was beaten by Jakobsen. “I was already in a big block when Christophe (Laporte, editor) started his lead,” it seems. “I think we surprised Quick-Step when we picked up the train. We were behind them. When Zdenek sent the Stybar out, we went over it. It was perfect progress, but I just missed it. Jacobsen was stronger. I was really at the limit when I had to speed up and I didn’t have a surplus.” Adequate.

“I was also hoping for more time lags,” admits Van Aert. “But it’s all back. Oh a lot. I’m glad the legs were good. I was able to ride a nice race. The team was really ready for action and we forced it ourselves a few times, but there wasn’t enough giving up. There were very few The classics riders are up front in my opinion, and too few GC riders to get really big breaks. In the end it turned out to be a good day for Primoz Roglic, who came through unscathed.”
