Getting Away LBL19-5
With the final ascent up the Cote de la Roche aux Faucons, it was time to make an attempt to catch the race napping. Tim Wellens (Lotto Soudal) was the first to go, perhaps hoping to be the first Belgium rider to win the race since 2011. More likely he just want to win. After a bit of drying out, it was a cruel fate of weather that the final kilometers including a steep descent would be contested on wet roads.
