Matheu Van Der Poel made it a clean sweep for the Dutch in the Men’s Elite race after the women’s elite was won by Fem van Epel Saturday. A little help from a flat tyre by second placed Wout Van Aert didn’t hurt either 😁. The initial sprint was rather precarious with the narrow track seeing riders within inches of each other. The beach portion tested the leg strength of the riders, it was all about raw power. It was Matheu’s fourth rainbow jersey to assert his dominance of the championship. It was a Belgian number 2 and 3 with Van Aert and Aerts occupying those slots to put smiles in home town fans at least.
