Edward Theuns (Trek-Segafredo) took the victory of the Belgian Primus Classic, which is his first victory in two years.

The last time that the Belgian rider raised his arms was at the sixth stage of the 2017 Tour of Turkey, but this long dry period has come to an end in his home country. The rider crossed the finish line in Haacht after 197 kilometres, outsprinting Pascal Ackermann (Bora-hansgrohe) and Jasper De Buyst (Lotto Soudal).

"This is such a huge relief, and a big thank you to the team," said the rider. "It's been almost 2 years since I've won, and I am super happy. I really felt good in the past two weeks, but today I thought I wouldn't be at the best of my level. As a team we did such a good race, we took initiative and were always in the attacks and never in a defensive mode, so it was a super good job, and everyone played his role.

"I am so happy, so proud that I could finish the work of the guys. And for me, it's also a big thank you to Trek-Segafredo to take me back after a tough year last year. Now I feel I am getting back to my best level, and I am so happy I could give a victory to the team."
