The Race: This was a hard stage, a mini Ronde van Vlaanderen with thirteen climbs.

The man who has always been a bridesmaid this season (second at Flanders and Het Nieuwsblad, to name two) has won his first race of the season. Greg van Avermaet went past Pavel Brutt, who had gone earlier on the Geraardsbergen, to take the win.

Tom Dumoulin's second place gave him six incredibly valuable bonus seconds. Valuable because Dumoulin is now the GC leader over Lars Boom (who came in fifth and out of the bonificatons) by just two seconds.

Winner's average speed: 42.65 km/hr
