What we usually get with H-I is a big sprint and this one was much reduced thanks to some indecision on the part of the bigger teams that saw a split on the final climb.

Even so, recent Elfstedenronde winner Blythe was the only "name" sprinter to miss the move and both Van Poppel and Jakobsen still had one or two teammates with them to close any gaps and deal with positioning.

Nice to see a full complement of CXers steadily riding into form here. Time was that few would seriously influence a race like this but there seem to be more and more who are clearly talented enough on the road to follow the example of MVDP and Van Aert.
