Eric Vanderaerden

Eric Vanderaerden

The Race: Wet, muddy and slippery. Sean Kelly fell on wet cobbles at the 25-kilometers to go point, holding up most of the favorites. Eric Vanderaerden attacked right then and immediately had a gap. He rode away from the field and caught three breakaways (Rudy Dhaenens, Patrick Versluys and Philippe Vandenbrande) who had been away for a long time. They rode to the finish together, where Vanderaerden easily won the sprint.
