Team Jumbo-Visma

Jumbo-Visma's Dylan Groenewegen has taken his fifth victory of the season at the Driedaagse De Brugge-De Panne. The rider was the strongest sprinter in the bunch finale of the Belgian race.

The Dutch formation did an outstanding job by keeping Groenewegen safe in the difficult moments of the race, that included several climbs and cobblestone sectors. The end was very tricky but they managed to position the rider right where he was supposed to be to launch his sprint and take the victory ahead of Fernando Gaviria and Elia Viviani.

"The team did a good job all day," the Dutchman commented. "And I am happy for the entire team that I was able to finish it off. "In the technical final it was tough to hold positions and it was difficult to stay together as a team. We already had to do a sprint before the last corner.

"I was a bit boxed in, but my teammates solved that issue very well. I am happy that I have been able to reward them. This victory feels very good because I have defeated some of the best sprinters here."
