Top days for Brent Van Moer
It's going hard for Lotto Soudal U23 rider Brent Van Moer. The guy from Beveren was a bit disappointed after his second spot in the U23 Omloop Het Nieuwsblad last week, but made the final effort on Saturday in the very first edition of the GP Rik Van Looy in Herentals, home soil for his team.
When the peloton exploded after a cobble section, Van Moer was in the front. In the final he had to battle for the victory with four other guys. Van Moer attacked and had one opponent in his wheel. In the sprint he finished it off.
Now his focus goes to the European championships in Czech, where he will ride the individual time trial. Van Moer - taking part in his first European championships - wants to take revench for his less succeeeded Belgian championships in Vresse-sur-Semois.
