1.HC

Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne

March 3rd

SUNDAY, 3 MAR 2019

201.1km – 3 climbs, including two new Hellingen – Eikenmolen and Volkegemberg – and Oude Kwaremont, the key point at 115km as a crucial climb.



Unfortunately Team BAHRAIN MERIDA leader Sonny Colbrelli crashed before the Oude Kwaremont and he was forced to abandon the race: “Too bad. I was in the first group and I was involved in a crash. They cut in front of me and I hit the ground. Happily just some bruises and bumps, but nothing serious. I’m looking forward to next races. I will be at the start of Paris-Nice for sure”.
Good performance of Ivan Cortina, who was in the first group and took 13th place, showing that classics race suit him: “I’m happy because last year I couldn’t finish this race, while now I finished it at the front. Classics are my favourite races and I want to improve”.
