BinckBank (4): Survivor Pasqualon finisht just outside the top 10

Mathieu van der Poel surprised the peloton with a daring exploit in the final stage of the BinckBank Tour (2.WT, 3/10). He escaped with Florian Sénéchal with 73 kilometer to go, on the second of four passages on the Muur van Geraardsbergen. The duo passed the early breakaway. The remaining peloton did everything it could to catch Van der Poel, solo, but didn't succeed. The Dutch rider won both the stage and the final victory. Despite a flat tire, Andrea Pasqualon survived well at the front. The Italian finished 11th in a sprint for 9th place and took 15th in the final classification.
