3 – Alessandro Fancellu at 1’38”
Speaking seconds after the race the winner Remco Evenepoel said:
“I’m very happy. I crashed at a bad moment before the Gnadenwald climb. I was almost two minutes behind. I came back and I had an amazing descent. I knew I could drop the German guy because he couldn’t ride with me. I already knew what I would do when I’d win. I wanted to finish the season the same way I started at Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne, with lifting my bike, so I did it. I came here to win two titles. What a season!”
