Trek-Segafredo has made up for the performance in the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad by working perfectly well to achieve the victory of Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne with Mads Pedersen.

On Saturday, the team didn't play it well and missed the front group for the finale, having Alex Kirsch in the best position of the entire roster at the 63rd, two minutes and 44 seconds behind the winner Davide Ballerini. But the story was different at the second Belgian race, as the team saved energy in the appropiate moments and worked hard to deliver Pedersen safe to the final kilometre, where he showed his good legs and won with ease the final sprint.

"Always let the legs speak and not make silly excuses," said Pedersen. "I think we did it in the right way with the win today. It was super nice to finish it off today and make a result after yesterday. What can we say? We fucked up pretty hard and it was pretty bad, so it's nice to show that we are there. We don't want to see that team of yesterday, that's for sure.

"I was actually sitting in Mathieu's [van der Poel, Ed.] wheel when he went, but it was quite early, so I didn't even want to follow. Then when the group went on the Kwaremont, my position was okay, but I was not quite good enough to follow. It was a good situation for us with Jasper in the first group. He can do a really good sprint and his chances were good too, so actually we were quite happy as it was with the two groups.

"It's a strong field here - chapeau for Mathieu for trying and they almost made it, but today it was not in the breakaway's favor, it was in ours."
