Gent-Wevelgem in Flanders Fields. Strong effort by Cort and Valgren doesn’t pay off
In the 80th edition of the race, Magnus Cort and Michael Valgren finished just behind the first group of winner Peter Sagan, finishing 24th and 26th. After the final Kemmelberg climb a group of riders took off and formed a group of 23 riders including some riders of the day’s breakaway. Alexey Lutsenko, Michael Valgren and Magnus Cort tried to close the gap to this group in the final part of the race, but even with an attack of Valgren and Cort together with Alexander Kristoff didn’t pay off, as they finished 50 seconds behind the first group.
