anyone saw what happened at ZLM? Decided to cut a lap during the would have been second to last lap. Confusion among the riders and the Jumbo guy just won somehow.
 
Last stage of ZLM:

1 Ewan
2 Walscheid
3 Groenewegen

And crosser Tim Merlier wins Elfstedenronde ahead of Jakobsen and Philipsen. Chances were already looking slim but Bouhanni can forget about being selected for the Tour after finishing 6th and 7th in this and Heiste Pijl yesterday.

Second time (after the last stage in the Baloise Belgium Tour) in less than 2 weeks that a Corendon-Circus rider caused a crash in the last couple 100 meters by not paying attention after they stopped pedalling. Although this time the DQS-rider wasn't really looking either.

This was definitely Martinelli's fault. The wind was coming from the left so Hansen was always going to swing off to the left. You see this in many lead-outs where nothing happens and everyone stays upright. Martinelli was just stupid enough to look down and rode straight into Hansen.

Didn't Merlier cause the crash in Belgium Tour because he didn't look in front of himself when he began sprinting?
 
It would have been a bit funny if Havik had actually caught De Bondt. That would probably have taken the cake as most unlikely victory of the year. He really comes from way down in the peloton and somehow manages to swerve left around the crash without losing speed as the only rider.

That was big bro Van der Poel.

Agreed. Norman Hansen had been on the front full gas for over a km. He had to pull off and did so in a predictable, normal way.
 
Timothy Dupont wins stage 1 of Tour de Wallonie.
Lotto Soudal not quite able to tell riders apart:

Four riders in today's breakaway: Nielsen, E. Planckaert, Ista and Leroux.
Both Stokbro and Brøchner are called 'Nielsen' (good thing Cort isn't in the race...). Though, the fault might be on the organisers for not using the correct name.
'E. Planckaert' is definitely Edward.


Around twenty kilometres to go in the opening stage of #TRW2019 and De Bondt, B. Planckaert and Stockman lead the race with an advantage of around 45 seconds.
There are two Stockmans. Though, they're twins, so maybe Lotto just played it safe.
 
And meanwhile in Wallonie; Demare spends a large part of the day in the break.
Drops down to the peloton when it becomes clear the break won't make it. (And also possibly a bit tired…)
Wins the sprint.
All in a good day's work. :cool:

Also Vliegen won stage 2 (and took the jersey), while Cimolai won stage 3.
 
Tosh Van der Sande won the final stage ahead of Coquard - and catapulted himself into second.
Dries De Bondt was third (both on the stage and the GC)
And, just so nobody gets skipped, Quentin Pacher was fifth, after a tricky intermediate sprint trick.
