Alexander Kristoff claims solo victory at Scheldeprijs

Alexander Kristoff (Intermarche-Wanty-Gobert) rode away solo to win the 110th edition of Scheldeprijs.

The Norwegian attacked with 7km to go after a 14-rider group fended off a chase group to win all alone in the Belgian classic.

“It was a hard race,” Kristoff said. “In the finale Bora and Alpecin were attacking on the last lap. I was suffering to cover all the moves because I was alone after my teammate crashed out. So in the end of the cobbles I thought to give it a try to get away. Nobody followed me and so I pushed everything I had.”

Danny Van Poppel (Bora-hansgrohe) crossed the line second, with Sam Welsford (DSM) third.
