After 30 kilometres Preben Van Hecke, Dennis van Winden, Elmar Reinders, Hugo Houle, Ryan Mullen, Mark McNally, Jay Thomson, Loïc Chetout and Christophe Masson jump free. They race to a maximum lead of 8 minutes lead.
With 40 kilometres to go Van Hecke is the last leader to be reeled in.
Van Avermaet accelerates on the last climb up the Kemmelberg and he is accompanied by Sagan. Degenkolb, Terpstra, Stybar and Boasson-Hagen bridge over, while a group with Matthews, Naesen, Keukeleire, Trentin, Colbrelli, Thwaites, Bettiol and Kragh Andersen also re-joins. Only flat roads left to the line.
After Ypres Keukeleire pushes on with Van Avermaet, Terpstra, Sagan en Kragh Andersen. The first two forge ahead, while the other three start looking at each other. The gap widens to 20 seconds, shrinks, and then goes up again.
Van Avermaet opens up the ensuing sprint and powers to his second win three days as he took E3 Harelbeke last Friday.
