Evenepoel was able to hold off a challenge from his teammate Yves Lampaert, and leads Lampaert by 45 seconds in the overall standings.

The pair of Deceuninck-QuickStep cyclists dominated the day, and were 18 seconds ahead of Finn Fisher-Black (Jumbo-Visma), who managed a third-place finish after the flat 11.2km Knokke-Heist route.

“I can’t put into words how happy I am!” Evenepoel said afterwards. “This winning feeling is something that was missing since last year’s Tour de Pologne and I am relieved that I took the stage today.

“I went through some difficult months with the rehabilitation, so it feels quite nice to win in this discipline that I love so much and contribute to the team’s superb tally.
