Jos van Emden and Timo Roosen have seized the third and fourth place respectively in Binche-Chimay-Binche.
In a rain-dominated race, Team Jumbo-Visma was always in front. At the start of the four local laps, the race broke open. Taco van der Hoorn moved along with a large group of twelve riders who eventually were joined by Van Emden and Roosen’s group.
“I felt really good during the race”, Van Emden said. “The legs were great. I think this is a very good race in a special part of Belgium. Timo was in good position in the last kilometre so I tried to do the lead out for him. Unfortunately, he was not able to succeed, so it suddenly was me who almost won. We could have had a better result, but this third place feels good to me.”
