Mud splatters in the picture: relive the victory of Wout in Boom
Mud, cool temperatures and rain: that was what Wout van Aert was presented with ...
Check out the most stunning photos of these Italian classics covering a podium place for both Wout van Aert in Milano-Sanremo and Marianne Vos in Trofeo Binda.
Van Aert went on the attack with Julian Alaphilippe on the Poggio, but had to watch in the final as Jasper Steven stayed ahead of the group of favorites. Last year’s winner showed off his good legs with a few pinpricks but was eventually beaten by Caleb Ewan in the sprint for second place.
Vos sprinted to second place in the second WorldTour race of the season. When in the penultimate lap of the race the later winner Elisa Longo Borghini attacked, the Dutch cyclist tried to bridge across to the Italian rider, but didn’t succeed. Vos then sovereignly won the sprint for second place.
