Greg Van Avermaet, Nathan Van Hooydonck, Jürgen Roelandts and Jempy Drucker, supported by BMC Racing took on some famous stretches of cobbles.

Greg Van Avermaet, who won Paris-Roubaix, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, E3 Harelbeke and Gent-Wevelgem last season and was second at the Tour of Flanders in 2017. Last year's cobbled races went a long way to dispelling any myth that Van Avermaet would be a perpetual second place to riders like World Champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe).

The Belgian was second best at Flanders after Philippe Gilbert (Quick-Step Floors) went on a long range attack. Van Avermaet is set on doing the Roubaix-Flanders double this year.

With Richie Porte aiming for the Tour de France, this could be a huge year for BMC Racing, whose strong squad should contest Quick-Step Floors for overall number of race wins.
