Lars Van Der Haar took his first win of the season today in Ronse. On a though course with lots of climbs, an attack with 2 laps to go was enough to refer Van Der Poel and Van Aert to the other places on the podium.
It was a closed race. It’s not untill Van Aert accelerates that the race breaks open completely. Van Aert takes a few seconds advantage but Van Der Poel returns with Aerts on his tale.
The tempo drops and now Van Der Poel decides to attack. Now Van Aert makes the return with Van Der Haar in his wheel.
Van Der Haar does not hesitate and attacks on the finish lane with 2 laps to go. Van Aert and Van Der Poel are looking at eachother to react but nothing happens. They even allow Aerts and Pauwels to make the return.
Van Der Haar is already more then half a minute before this group and on his way to his first win of the season. A big one. The group sprints for the remaining podium places. Van Der Poel wins it before Van Aert, Pauwels and Aerts.
