On the high, solely Pedersen, Lazkano, Dylan Teuns, Laurence Pithie and Tim Wellens had been nonetheless on the wheel of the World champion, after which a bunch together with Jorgenson and Matej Mohorič was in a position to be part of them. The primary time over the Paterberg the race was break up, however the gaps had been nonetheless small. Within the run-up to the Koppenberg the teams of favourites got here again collectively. Iván García jumped away and began the cobbles climb of the Koppenberg with a slight lead, however he had a mechanical downside and needed to cease. Mathieu van der Poel got here storming previous with Matteo Jorgenson and Mads Pedersen behind him. The others weren’t so fortunate and needed to run up the climb. The tempo that Van der Poel set on the Koppenberg was the decisive transfer of the day. Jorgenson had the World champion in sight excessive, however Van der Poel now had the bit between his tooth and took time on everybody.

Flanders 2024

Race winner, Mathieu Van der Poel (Alpecin-Deceuninck): “At this time was simply survival. For me it has been the toughest Tour of Flanders I’ve ever finished in these climate situations. We did these final twenty kilometres with our eyes closed. I used to be so devastated that I didn’t assume a lot. I’ve to assume once more about what occurred. The rain made the cobblestone climbs troublesome. Particularly the Koppenberg, I slipped till reaching the highest. Then I had created hole, however with the wind it was nonetheless far to go. I rolled as arduous as I might. It was very troublesome to discover a good place to go. The crew was unbelievable. I mentioned they needed to stick collectively till the Koppenberg. I didn’t count on to be alone. The second time I handed the Kwaremont I used to be within the lead. Afterwards I didn’t have one of the best emotions, however I’m glad to have received once more. My season has already been a hit. I nonetheless can’t take into consideration Roubaix. I’m utterly fucked proper now.”

2nd, Luca Mozzato (Arkéa-B&B Accommodations): “It’s a consequence that exceeds my expectations. If somebody had advised me this morning ‘you’re going to be within the high 20’, I might have been blissful, and ‘within the high 10’ I might have signed up instantly. However on the rostrum… I believe I made the trouble on the proper time. Everybody needed to anticipate Van der Poel’s assault. In my head, the aim was to beat as many hills within the first group as doable by managing my efforts. And that paid off within the closing, as a result of within the final 30 or 40 kilometres I used to be in fairly good condition. It was a race the place everybody ended up ‘cooked’. We had been fortunate to catch Bettiol and Teuns within the closing dash and I’m very proud of second place.”

third, Nils Politt (UAE Crew Emirates): “I used to be already on the crew bus after which the decision got here saying I used to be third. I’m tremendous proud of this consequence, being on the rostrum of the Tour of Flanders is one thing particular, that is my second time on a podium of a Monumentum after the one on the Paris-Roubaix. We deserved this consequence as a crew as a result of we rode very effectively immediately, with 4 riders within the high 12. For what considerations the dash, I can say I used to be coming with pace and I needed to brake slightly bit. The commissaires took this determination, I really feel additionally sorry for Matthews.”

seventh, Oliver Naesen (Decathlon AG2R La Mondiale): “At this time I had distinctive legs and I’m very proud of the consequence. I gave rather a lot to attempt to get out of the chasing group and inevitably I paid slightly for it on the finish with cramps within the dash, which was the small disappointment of the day. The crew did an important efficiency with Damien (Touzé) within the morning breakaway. Then I joined him with the group of favourites and he did an important job for me, Dries (De Bondt) additionally positioned me effectively on the foot of the second climb of the Kwaremont. From that second on I felt like among the finest within the group of favourites, however Mathieu (Van der Poel) was already forward. All through the race I advised myself that between second and fifth can be my place, ultimately there have been seven. Not too far.”

eighth, Dylan Teuns (Israel-Premier Tech): “On some events, at key moments, I used to be not in place or I caught a crash. However at first of the race, with about 120 kilometres to go, when the massive guys had been leaving, I used to be in a position to keep additional and additional forward and be up there in the appropriate positions. After which, at Koppenberg, I had no selection however to cease, get off the bike and begin working. I had by no means seen that earlier than in one other race. Teuns’ parting phrases after the finale left nothing open to interpretation. I’m nonetheless coming again, I need that place on the rostrum.”

ninth, Alberto Bettiol (EF Schooling-EasyPost): “That is biking. I had a whole lot of dangerous luck immediately. The second time I fell within the Kwaremont and needed to wait, however I’m very proud of my teammates. They helped me all day. There was no technique to beat Van der Poel immediately, however a podium would have been good. Sorry, additionally for Dylan Theuns. Now we have ridden very effectively collectively and maybe we deserved a greater consequence, however it’s what it’s. Subsequent Sunday there may be one other alternative in Paris-Roubaix and we’ll reap the benefits of it.”

fifteenth, Tiesj Benoot (Visma | Lease a Bike): “This was a really powerful version. The legs felt fairly good. Sadly, I needed to cope with some dangerous mechanical luck. On the Previous Kwaremont I made a mistake that induced my rear derailleur to take a success. I used to be in a position to change it slightly later. Ultimately Sadly I had a flat tyre. In any other case possibly I might have fought for a spot on the rostrum, however that’s the way in which it’s. It was a really arduous day. We tried as a crew, however sadly the competitors immediately was too sturdy.”

twenty sixth, Iván García Cortina (Movistar): “I really feel slightly helpless. Within the Kwaremont they had been passing me and I used to be not in a position to observe the wheels and within the Koppenberg I had no grip in any respect. I attempted to go for the cleanest line, however I used to be skidding rather a lot and there was no approach. I desperately tried to decrease the strain, as a result of in any other case I used to be going to have a nasty time later. It was higher to be secure than sorry, as a result of in any other case it could be comparable on the brand new Kwaremont and Paterberg. Once you see a top-10 so shut, it makes you helpless, see how everybody passes you within the closing half. Everyone seems to be lifeless, however you slightly extra and also you see the way you go with out energy. If the Koppenberg factor had not occurred, I might have modified little, however I might have continued forward slightly extra.”

thirty first, Matteo Jorgenson (Visma | Lease a Bike): “This was one of the vital troublesome days I’ve ever had on the bike. I did all the things I might to win the race. I knew I needed to observe Van der Poel and I gave all the things to be on his wheel. Sadly, I needed to let him go. I went full throttle to shut the hole, but it surely simply didn’t work. Then it was throughout for me. Van der Poel rode very sensible and powerful immediately. He’s the deserved winner. We fought as a crew and did one of the best we might. I’m happy with that combating spirit.”

The women had been wonderful immediately, as at all times, as was the assist from the workers within the automobile. I had a small accident and a puncture and fell, and so they supported me in an excellent approach. Ultimately ending first and third in a race like that is unimaginable. This victory can be for Lizzie. She fell on the primary set of cobbles and sadly broke her arm, so we hope we are able to put a smile on her face. I like arduous races, however I’m not essentially a really quick bicycle owner, however in these eventualities, when the race is lengthy and individuals are drained, what comes out is your effectivity and the freshest one virtually wins and I nonetheless felt good on the finish. Within the final three kilometres, I knew that we nonetheless wanted to push arduous and that we couldn’t play “the sport” but. However, in my thoughts, I knew what I needed to do. I mentioned to myself, ‘You’re feeling good, win this!’ Nevertheless, Shirin was unimaginable immediately, coming again and attacking instantly. I stored reminding her that with 30 seconds you may win Flanders as a result of we had been roommates this week, and I confirmed her slightly bit from after I received in 2015 and so they advised me that in the event you go away Kwaremont with 30 seconds you may win. and that’s why I stored telling her that. Nevertheless, SD Worx rode arduous till the top from there, so the hole grew to become smaller and smaller. Then in Paterberg I heard from the automobile that she was simply going and he or she was making it troublesome as a result of the numbers are at all times good for us. Lastly we had been within the group of three with Kasia, who I knew was additionally actually wanting ahead to going, and we had been in a position to attain collectively the aim. Shirin was ready for me and we all know that our energy as a crew is how briskly we run so effectively as a crew and that is one thing we deliberate collectively. We began our day with mutual belief and everybody did an incredible job. We’re again to our full potential as a crew. I’m a distinct bicycle owner and this can be a completely completely different victory than the primary one I achieved right here. I’m sporting the tricolor shirt, I’m a extra mature lady. I used to be just a bit woman after I received in 2015 and now I can realise extra and am extra acutely aware of what I’m reaching. Each victory is particular as a result of nothing will be taken without any consideration in biking or in life.”

In fact I attacked too, however I actually get pleasure from it when it’s a extremely arduous race. The rain and the gap made it extra enjoyable. I perceive it’d look loopy on TV, initially I assumed Kasia had closed the hole, however ultimately it was the appropriate tactic. I used to be truly going by that myself. I actually belief the tactical choices of Jeroen Blijlevens and Ina-Yoko Teutenberg from the automobile. On the one hand, I used to be desirous about successful, particularly after I nonetheless had a lead after Paterberg. I wasn’t anticipating it in any respect, but it surely shortly grew to become clear that I needed to anticipate Elisa and Kasia. Then I realised that I needed to anticipate Elisa, as a result of she was the quickest. You don’t know if I might have stayed forward and ultimately we received, which for us is an important factor. There are two of us on the rostrum, so it has been a really profitable day.”

I needed to set foot as a result of they went off the bike in entrance of me and on the Koppenberg there isn’t any room to move them. With that, a really sturdy main group was gone and we had been working behind. I then tried to trip as arduous as I might to get Demi Vollering again in place. Finally I attempted to set the tempo as excessive as doable within the chasing group so we might rejoin. That succeeded, however price a whole lot of energy. So it provides a double feeling. It’s a disgrace we couldn’t get extra out of it, however I’m going to show the knob round shortly and give attention to the following aim: Paris-Roubaix.”

Solely we had been continuously behind after the Koppenberg. Fortunately Lorena Wiebes was in a position to restrict the injury and along with her we had been nonetheless represented on the entrance. However Lotte and I missed the battle on the Koppenberg as a result of we needed to get off our bikes. Ultimately, I wasted a whole lot of vitality within the chase. We utterly drained ourselves. Once you’re two or three in entrance, you may play the sport. Now it was vital not to surrender and to maintain believing in it. Once you see how Lotte nonetheless got here again and stored combating and in addition went full within the final kilometre … There was extra in it. I had hoped to simply be there on the Paterberg, however this was a most effort for me. There was simply nothing extra in it as a result of I had already used up a lot vitality. Too dangerous, I hope to win this in the future.”
