Another fail for after-you-no-after-you racing as the underdogs got away for the win. Crap day for the big names but so many top teams (#sky, #uae, #ag2r, #bmc and #sunweb) were all but absent from the results sheet.

Not that I resent Valgren's victory, which closely resembled that of Omloop, but the young Dane will not benefit from that status for much longer now that he has twice proved he can win these big races.

Personally I felt that he had spent too long in the wings at #astana given his very promising 2016 season, so now you would expect he deserves automatic leadership in the big one-day races given that Cort and Lutsenko haven't yet quite proven their consistency at this level.
