Weather at the finish city of Nokere at 1:00 PM, local time: &C (45F), cloudy, with the wind from the north at 24 km/hr (15 mph). There is an 80% of rain through the afternoon.

The race: Here's the report from winner Ludovic Robeet's Bingoal-WB team.

Ludovic Robeet surprised by winning solo at the Nokere Koerse. Our rider was the last survivor, with the French Damien Gaudin, of a breakaway of a group of 8 riders. The crew model that wants to continue to be Ludovic Robeet lifted Wednesday arms to 2 th  time in his career, after his victory, also alone in the 4th stage of the Settimana Coppi e Bartali in 2019.

Ludovic Robeet. “The breakaway started after an hour of racing. I didn't have the best feelings in the peloton but the legs are gradually when the tension has calmed down a bit. I joined the eight-rider breakaway, which admittedly wasn't really my role. With me in the squad, the team situation was ideal as my teammates didn't have to ride in the peloton. Over the kilometers, I waited for our group to be taken back to be able to put myself at the service of our leader of the day, Timothy Dupont, with whom we had a great chance of victory. We found ourselves two at the front on the last lap, with the French Damien Gaudin. I felt a little stronger than him. We drove first to widen the gap a bit. And when I saw that the group of pursuers could not catch us, I knew we were going to play for victory together. I also knew I had to let go if I wanted to play my card because he is stronger than me in the sprint. So I produced my effort 2 kilometers from the finish. I then realized that I was going to win.

“I am very happy to have won at Nokere, as I had been during my first professional success in 2019 at Coppi e Bartali. I have to realize what I accomplished in Nokere, to really appreciate it. I can say that winning is good but winning when it is difficult is even better! "

“I played my role as a teammate at Nokere and ultimately won. That doesn't mean that I don't remain the teammate that I always have been. So I will return to my role as a teammate from the next race. In Nokere, I was lucky that the breakaway went to the end, which is not always the case. But it nevertheless allowed me to go for the victory. But I want to continue doing a good job serving the team, I think that's also how I'm progressing. "

166 starters, 80 abandons, 86 classified finishers.
