Antwerp Port Epic: top 10 for Meurisse in the battle for the port of Antwerp

This Sunday, the dust blew around the Port of Antwerp for the Antwerp Port Epic (1.1, 13/09). Circus-Wanty Gobert-Tormans appeared at the start with the 2019 winner and third, Aimé De Gendt and Timothy Dupont. After the first race hour, the unpaved roads and cobblestone sections followed eachother without breaks, skimming the peloton. Due to crashes, Timothy Dupont and Aimé De Gendt lost their position at the front. Also Wesley Kreder disappeared from the front because of a flat tire. Xandro Meurisse and the Van Poppel brothers stayed well at the front. With Xandro Meurisse being held up because of a flat tire, Danny Van Poppel attacked with four others. But finally, three other riders sprinted for the victory at the end of the 183 kilometer race. Gianni Vermeersch won in front of the Port House, with Xandro Meurisse finishing 10th.
