Laurens Sweeck continues his winning streak and took his fourth win of the season in Merksplas. Sweeck also extends his lead in the Telenet Superprestige Series with a total of 4 points.
Sweeck took a blistering start, going solo already in the first lap. Nobody was able to close the gap, so the rider of Crelan-Fristads made it a one-man show all the way up till the finish line.
“My race wasn’t entirely flawless, but that wasn’t the case with anybody. I was able to make the difference early on as nobody took the lead, of which I took advantage. I’m still not a 100% at my level, but I’m clearly feeling well. I want to keep this shape as long as possible.”
