Brammeier is the first to go on the attack in the Grand Prix de Québec. Castelijns, Pichot, Bak, Belkov and Agnoli chase him down, while Barta and Masbourian hook up before the first passage on the line. The six race to a lead at more than 4 minutes.
With 50 kms remaining the lead is down to under 1 minute when Lars Bak goes solo. Luke Row and Julian Alaphilippe jump to the Danish rider and leave him alone with 40 kms to go. Row can’t hold on and then Alaphilippe stops his efforts.
An attack by Aru, Costa, Navardauskas and Mohoric doesn’t make it either.
Paul Voss is on the attack with one lap to go, yet Oliver Naesen takes over. At the closing climb Trentin, Moscon and Alaphilipe give it a go but it’s only when title defender Uran attacks on exactly the same spot as last year it looks like we have a winner.
No. In the dying metres bof the race World Champion Sagan comes speeding past, an Olympic Champion on his wheel. Sagan win, Van Avermaet finishes in second after an exciting finale.
