Fabio Jakobsen sprints to Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne Victory

Peloton catches three man breakaway with 200 metres to go, Jakobsen fastest ahead of McEwan and Hugo Hofstetter

Fabio Jakobsen sprints to Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne Victory

The three man breakaway consisting of Laporte, Van der Hoorn and Narvaez will be kicking themselves after holding off a thinned peloton for over 20 kms to be caught by the sprinters team just before the finish line.

Laporte, Van der Hoorn and Narvaez broke away and held a gap of 11 seconds, but in the end the sprinters team organized themselves and shut the breakaway down in the closing km.

The Quick-Step sprinter launched as Christophe Laporte (Jumbo-Visma), Taco van der Hoorn (Intermarché-Want-Gobert Matériaux) and Jhonatan Narvaez (Ineos Grenadiers) were finally caught, Lotto-Soudal's Caleb Ewan following but unable to overhaul the Dutchman, having to settle for second place.

Arkéa-Samsic's Hugo Hofstetter and Dan McLay then finished third and fourth, with Giacomo Nizzolo (Israel - Premier Tech) rounding out the top five.
