7 laps to go Toon Aerts' advantage is up to 15". Nice to see Eli Iserbyt back racing at the front!
Embedded image permalinkKlaas Vantornout had a mechanical and changed his bike but now he has to chase. Troubles also for Sven Nys who hit the back wheel of van Baestaens and looks in pain.

Embedded image permalink5 laps to go Iserbyt is caught and a compact chasing group pulled by Sven Nys is at 35'' from Aerts.
Simunek got a mechanical and is stucked.
Embedded image permalink4 laps to go the chase isn't gaining on Aerts, they are loosing instead and cross the line 41" down. Meeusen attacks and gets a gap. Nys and Taramarcaz are slightly dropped. 3 laps to go Meeusen is at 34" from Toon Aerts, Iserbyt, Baestaens, Nys and Taramarcaz follow at 1'. 
Full podium for Telenet-Fidea? it would be cool!
Sven Nys changed his bike and lost terrain.
Embedded image permalinkLast lap: Toon Aerts crashes! but he's back on bike and has got a good gap. Tom Meeusen is closer now, he isn't chasing hard though. Toon Aerts can enjoy a solo victory, Tom Meeusen also claps on the line as 2nd. Eli Iserbyt fails to win the sprint and is 5th. The last spot on podium goes to Vincent Baestaens.

Klaas Vantornout:
Embedded image permalink"Lekke tube op een slecht moment, al waren de benen ook niet hersteld! Nu een rustige week gepland. #leuven @MAR_NAPG_CT" [Flat tyre at a bad time,legs also were not completely recovered! Now a quiet week is planned."]

Toon Aerts:
Embedded image permalink"Through my first gear (lap) I immediately felt that I had good legs. It started in the penultimate lap when I was in the lead. I maybe started too early, to think of the victory, and was not riding [technically] well. In the last lap I made another tumble. I tried as quickly as possible to get the rhythm back and the lead, that I had to keep still. I felt really strong today. The intention was to get into the technical area and to immediately sit up front. At one point I was in the lead. I pulled through and immediately felt that I had good legs. I had no doubts. Through the speaker I heard that I had increased my lead. I set the pace and could hold it to the end, but all in all this is still an unexpected victory."
