Jeremy Hunt strongest in Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne

Well, that isn’t strictly true as Sylvain Chavanel was again the strongest but as he was working entirely in the service of Tom Boonen we can discount him. The attacks from the lead group of about thirteen riders started 10km from the finish and Hunt instigated or covered every move,

Juan Antonio Flecha got a gap that stretched to seven seconds but metre by metre Chavanel clawed him back. When he was caught Rabobank’s Nick Nuyens had a dig and was closed down by Hunt who then started his sprint. Unfortunately Boonen knew the best wheel and came round Hunt without difficulty and Bernhard Eisel edged past on the line.
