Tour of Flanders: the fall that spoils the party


AT who is at fault? On the motorcycle, to Julian Alaphilippe? Whatever the blame, if there was to be one, the incident harmed, considerably, the final dazzling that a pale light, as if it was the last of autumn, finally illuminated.

The world champion had taken up his responsibilities in the most delicate mountain for him, the Koppenberg, by taking the side edge, as thin as his guts, but more rolling too. Without getting up from the saddle so as not to take any risks. A perfect approach, worthy of a cyclo-cross rider, which he was at his beginnings, in the anonymity of the French events.

Alaphilippe created the decision in this Tour of Flanders. It was he who provoked the reaction of Mathieu van der Poel, then of Wout van Aert, a little later, in the Taaienberg. Then there was this unfortunate collision, full force on the luggage rack of the motorcycle piloted by a race marshal.
