February 28/21 12:23 pm - Kurne-Bruxelles-Kurne results

Posted by Editoress on 02/28/21

Former World Champ Mads Pedersen (Trek - Segafredo) took the win ahead of the final select group in Kuurne, Belgium.
An early breakaway group of five, including Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) came close to surviving but were caught with just under two km to go.

Canadian riders Guillaume Boivin (Israel Start-Up Nation) and Ben Perry (Astana - Premier Tech) were 63rd at 1:48 back and 87th at 4:52 back.


Guillaume Boivin was back to competition on Sunday, in Kurne-Bruxelles-Kurne, after the last few days marked by a sidelining due to a false-positive test for COVID-19 from a member of the staff of his team. The Montrealer from Israel Start-Up Nation was the 63rd on race day where his teammate Jenthe Biermans placed fifth. He was scheduled to start on Saturday at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, before the false positive.

"We were in a pretty good position when there was a crash at the front of the field and only one guy from the team (Jenthe Biermans) managed to pass," explained Boivin. "We then tried to come back, but we were not able, despite our great efforts to return. At least Jenthe finished fifth and that's what saved our day."

Boivin concluded his day in a group of around thirty riders who crossed the finish line with a a little less than two minutes behind the leaders. 2019 world champion Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) of Denmark clinched victory in a sprint finish after 197 kilometres of racing.

Israel Start-Up Nation has had a good start to the season so far and Boivin argues that this is not just due to the good physical condition of the riders. "We have great momentum and the team is off to a great start to the season. We will continue to build on it. The atmosphere is fun, the world is in good shape and we have fun on the bike. And I think it shows in the results."  Sportcom
