Davide Ballerini continued his fine start to 2021 as he eased to victory at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.
Not surprisingly, it was Deceuninck – Quick-Step that forced the race, putting the rest of the peloton on the back foot.
The race reached the Molenberg before the pace really went up a gear, Alaphilippe leading a group off the front of the peloton alongside team-mates Zdenek Štybar and Davide Ballerini, as Greg Van Avermaet and Matteo Trentin were among those to have made the cut.
This star-studded group soon caught the day’s break, as Pidcock impressively rode across the gap.
Alaphilippe continued to be the main instigator of this move before peeling off the front on his own, but in the process, brought the peloton back into the mix.
With 20km to go, Alaphilippe’s lead was hovering just above 10 seconds, the Frenchman caught just before the Muur, where the race came back together, rather than blew apart.
At this point, the enormous bunch resigned themselves to the final sprint, but in which few sprinters actually showed up.
