Shedding One FW19-1
Americans may have been under represented in the European peloton of late, but two made it into the early break of Fleche Wallonne. It is Joey Rosskopf (CCC) looking back over his shoulder to see the Dutchman Kenneth Van Rooy (Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise) finding the Cote d'Ereffe too much to handle. Behind Rosskopf are Koen Bouwman (Jumbo-Visma), Tom Wirtgen (Wallonie-Bruxelles) and his countryman, Robin Carpenter (Rally-UHC). At this point the now four man group had a three minute lead over the peloton with another 62 kilometers to race. Unfortunately, hidden in those kilometers are three climbs of the infamous Mur de Huy.
