Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Deceuninck) secured his seventh career title at the Superprestige Diegem, racing nearly half the race solo and winning by 49 seconds ahead of runner-up Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers) and third-placed Eli Iserbyt (Pauwels Sauzen-Bingoal).

“It was a super nice race. It was a good night,” said Van der Poel, who noted that he was not thinking too much about record wins in Diegem. “I just tried to win as much as possible when I start [a race]. For sure, I have a good record here in Diegem. I felt good today, so I’m happy with the result.”
