A really muddy race. And a lot of running. 
The main favourites confirmed in the frst races of the day with victories by Dekker, Iserbyt and Cant.
The Elite Men race is on now. Not a good start for Lars van der Haar... Tom Meeusen is leading a still compact peloton.
At the first passage on the line Meeusen and the van der Poel bros has got a gap. Van Aert and Aerts joins.

Mathieu van der Poel attacks and 7 laps to he's solo, Meeusen and Van Aert chasing at 6", Aerts and D.Van der Poel at 8". Then Van Aert manages to bridge. Meeusen joins too.
6 laps to go the gap with Aerts is 11", with D.Van der Poel 15" and with Nys 30". 
M. Van der Poel attacks but makes a mistake on the barriers and Van Aert closes the gap.

3 laps to go van der Poel attacks again and drops van Aert
2 laps to go and Van Aert joins van der Poel again. What a thrilling finale!
