In his last road race of the year before starting the cyclocross season, Corné van Kessel was determined to show himself. So the Dutch rider joined the early breakaway in the second of thirteen laps of the Flemish Championship (1.1, 17/09) this Friday. Nevertheless, the breakaway didn’t manage to gain a big advantage as the sprinter’s teams were controlling behind. The race scenario of this final race of the Belgian Cup didn’t contain surprises and was concluded in an expected bunch sprint. Thanks to excellent positioning work of Quinten Hermans and Loïc Vliegen towards the final kilometer, Baptiste Planckaert sprinted to 6th place and his third consecutive top 10 in Koolskamp. Jasper Philipsen was the fastest.
