Easy victory for super-fast Groenewegen in Driedaagse Brugge-De Panne

Dylan Groenewegen wins Driedaagse Brugge-De Panne 2019

Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Visma) sprinted to victory at the Driedaagse Brugge-De Panne today, beating Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates) and Elia Viviani (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) to the line.

With 10 kilometres to go, there was a massive crash that affected riders like Jens Keukeleire (Lotto Soudal), Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) and Pascal Ackermann (Bora-hansgrohe).

Although the chase was momentarily disrupted, the peloton quickly caught the six-rider breakaway from earlier in the race, inside the last 10 kilometers.

Michael Mørkøv was able to manoeuvre to the front to drop off Viviani with 100m to go, but there was nothing the Italian champion could do to match the speed of Groenewegen and prevent him from taking the victory.

“In the technical final it was tough to hold positions, and it was difficult to stay together as a team,” Groenewegen said.
