Jens Debusschere wins 2015 GP Wallonie

The Race: It was a wet day in Europe, with racers in both Belgium and Italy (Coppa Agostoni) contending with slippery roads.

The Belgian race was one of pure aggression with breaks going off and being caught, only to have another escape blast off the front.

Close to the end, the last group had been rounded up when Lotto-Soudal rider Jens Debusschere gave it a go. It worked. The chase was without power and direction, allowing Debusschere to cross the line six seconds ahead of his nearest chaser, Jan Bakelandts.
