Greg Van Avermaet (AG2R Citroën Team) has finished in the third position of the Tour of Flanders, his fourth time on the podium of the race.

The Olympic champion was the fastest of the chasers and crossed the finish line 32 seconds behind the winner of the race, Kasper Asgreen. But before that, he showed to be in good shape being able to remain in the front despite losing one of his men, Michael Schär, earlier in the race as he was disqualified after throwing a bottle to some fans.

"Even if I did not have the same legs as in A Travers la Flandre (Dwars door Vlaanderen) on Wednesday, I managed to be at the front in the end," said Van Avermaet. "With my experience in this race, I succeeded in getting onto the podium. I know that at a classic like the Ronde Van Vlaanderen after 254 kilometers of racing, I still have resources at the end.

"The podium was the goal for the day, so I have no regrets today. I am happy to take my first podium at AG2R Citroën Team, which has invested a lot in the Flanders classics. The whole team worked well this winter, we are happy to race together, and we work well together."
