Quick-Step Floors has won the Hammer Series Limburg by staying ahead of the opposition in the Hammer Chase, in which Mitchelton-Scott set the best time.

Team Sunweb took the victory of the first group by finishing the three laps on the circuit in Limburg in 40 minutes and 56 seconds.

Quick-Step Floors was the first team to start in the second group of the competition and managed to keep the advantage all the way to the end. The real battles were fought behind where Mitchelton-Scott, LottoNL-Jumbo and Bahrain-Merida tried to get onto the last two spots of the podium.

Mitchelton-Scott, having started fourth, was the second team to cross the line with a time of 39'50", the fastest on the day.

Behind this group, BMC showed its strength in team time trials, easily overtaking teams like Lotto Soudal, Bora-hansgrohe and Sky.

Quick-Step Floors finished the three laps in 40 minutes and 37 seconds. Mitchelton-Scott was second and LottoNL-Jumbo third. In the last part of the last lap, there was chaos between Sky, BMC and Bora-hansgrohe, as each team's lines got intertwined and didn't come back together.

Lotto-Soudal arrived in last position.
