Yeah, Wright is difficult to spot when looking at the jersey. Bad national jersey... but he has the flag on his helmet. Thats how I saw him in the sprint. He was in a good position but sprinted backwards.
The guy might have the most overrated sprint in cycling. Always gets brought up as someone to watch out for in a reduced peloton, yet I can't remember a single good sprint by him. Goes to show how union jack-tinted the Anglosphere cycling media's glasses are.
 
Was looking for full results as CQ very slow. the translation of the roll of honour on the website comes up very strange:

2014 in 2014Tom BoonenMoreno HoflandSep Vanmarcke, The Netherlands

I think that royal epiphets should always be attached to Kristoff henceforth, and existential commentary should be compulsory in any future mention of Cavendish.
 
He has arrived one day too late, but nonetheless he as arrived! Great win.

It looks completely normal to me? So either the Kuurne site admin reads the forum, or the problem is on your end.

Not sure how I feel about the big Belgian steward having a scooter. Will probably extend his lifespan by a decade so must be a good thing?

Didn't he already escort Gilbert in 2008 & Traksel in 2010?

Pal is around since I can remember.

His very best sprint performance was the 2017 Omloop Het Nieuwsblad (also one of Greg's fine ones):

 
It really says a lot about how much things have changed when the forum doesn’t even bother to spend much time talking about how bad Soudal-Quickstep have become in the cobbled classics. It’s just accepted now. But it’s still kind of remarkable when one recalls how they used to make these 1st few weekends of cobbles (this weekend & E3/Gent) their personal playground with mulituple riders getting wins and on podiums, whereas yesterday they only had one rider finish in the top 25.

ed. In fact, only 1rider in the top 25 in both races this weekend, and not even a top ten in Omloop.
