Jonas Vangenechten continued his excellent season when he won yesterday's semi-classic GP de Fourmies. Actually, the Belgian had gone into the race as an important lead-out man for André Greipel but as the German wasn't feeling good, the team made a quick change of plans.

 

It was a successful weekend for Lotto Belisol. First there was the victory of André Greipel in the Brussels Cycling Classic and on Sunday Jonas Van Genechten won the Grand Prix de Fourmies. That was the 25th official victory of the season for the team.
 
A front group of four with the Belgian Victor Campenaerts formed the break of the day. They never got more than six minutes. Lotto Belisol controlled the peloton together with FDJ. Campenaerts could stay ahead the longest. After that there was a front group of about fifteen riders. The last man was caught in the final kilometer. Marcel Sieberg set up the sprint for Jonas Van Genechten, who won. Tom Van Asbroeck was second, Elia Viviani third.
 
“The team controlled the race from the beginning till the end," Vangenechten said. "André Greipel was the man for the sprint. Tony Gallopin and I could join breakaways in the final. With two laps to go André told us he didn’t feel 100% and then the team started riding for me. The guys did excellent work to catch the escapees. Marcel Sieberg launched the sprint very well.
 
“I focused on the sprint without worrying about the escapees. It all turned out well for us. This is my best season, with four nice victories. I hope to have the same condition in the next races and achieve more good results. Next Sunday I will ride in Leuven, the ‘Grote Prijs Jef Scherens’, also a race that suits me.”
