Tour des Flandres. Hugo Houle makes it in the breakaway, winning GP Stig Broeckx
In today’s Tour of Flanders, Hugo Houle showed himself in the early breakaway during a hard race for the riders of Astana Pro Team. As Houle was the first rider atop of the Oude Kwaremont climb, he won the inaugural GP Stig Broeckx. He donated the prize money to the rehabilitation center where Broeckx is recovering from his crash in 2016. Today's early breakaway of four riders, including Houle, got caught before today’s final. In the end, the first rider of Astana to cross the finish line was Laurens de Vreese in one of the groups behind winner Alberto Bettiol.
