2004 E3 Prijs Harelbeke (1.1), Belgium

47th edition: Saturday, March 27, 2004
Complete Results

E3 Prijs Harelbeke podium history | 2003 edition | 2005 edition

Tom Boonen

Before winning E3, Tom Boonen had won Gent-Wevelgem.

The race: With 27 kilometers to go, Michael Boogerd, Dave Bruylandts and Stijn Devolder were dangling off the front with a slim lead and a disorganized chase behind them.

With about five kilometers remaining, The Lotto & Quick Step teams realized that the race was headed down the road without them and began cooperating.

Come the final kilometer for the sprint, the lead trio slowed as they jockeyed for position. That was just enough hesitation for Boonen, lead out by teammate Stefano Zanini, to zoom by and take the first of what would become four consecutive E3 wins.

Complete results:

195 kilometers raced at an average speed of 43.173 km/hr
