Gonzalo Serrano (Movistar Team) secured the victory at the one-day Grand Prix de Wallonie, outsprinting late-race breakaway rival Dylan Teuns (Israel-Premier Tech) at the Citadelle de Namur.
Teuns was the first to surge in the final, but Serrano closed the gap and then won the sprint for the day’s victory.
Teuns said that due to the sharp corner taken at high speeds, he had to brake, which he felt might have cost him the win, “I am, of course, disappointed. The last corner was difficult, and I arrived there at too high a speed. I had to brake, and that allowed Serrano to pass me.”
Jasper De Buyst (Lotto Dstny) finished three seconds behind the pair in third, with world champion Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Deceuninck) finishing just off the podium in fourth place.
