"He fell heavily after around 30km. He could, however, continue the race, but of course he was hampered for the rest of the day. He complained about his right elbow. I hope this is not too serious."

Yesterday, the Wanty-Groupe Gobert were active in the Brabantse Pijl. The team was built around its leader Bjorn Leukemans. Francis De Greef, Yannick Eijssen, Tim De Troyer, Marco Marcato, Mirko Selvaggi, Lander Seynaeve and Marco Minnaard were the other riders in the line-up. 

In the early part of the race, the team feared the worst for there leader Bjorn Leukemans who crashed early in the race. 

"He fell heavily after around 30km. He could, however, continue the race, but of course he was hampered for the rest of the day. He complained about his right elbow. I hope this is not too serious," said sports director Hilaire Van der Schueren. 

It took a long time before the breakaway with Thomas De Gendt (Lotto-Soudal), Alex Kirsch (Cult Energy Pro Cycling) and Anthony Delaplace (BretagneSéché Environnement) got clear. This group never really posed a threat. 

They were caught 30 km from the finish. A new offensive was made with 5 riders, including Tim De Troyer. 

"Tim De Troyer was good. He failed to join Ben Hermans and David Tanner since there was a little argument with the CCC rider, Matysiak," says Hilaire Van der Schueren.  

In the end, Ben Hermans and David Tanner stayed clear. The BMC rider took the win.

"Today we were in the mix but we were unable to play a role in the fight for the podium. We had a good approach. Tim De Troyer, Mirko Selvaggi and Bjorn Leukemans showed nice things today. I can only be pleased, but in general, the fatigue of the race on Sunday (Paris-Roubaix) was still being felt by everyone."

In the end, Marco Marcato finished 17th as the first Wanty-Groupe Gobert rider. He didn't miss much to fight for second place with the Matthews group.
