The 2020 edition of the Binck Bank Tour will be classified as a bad memory of cyclist Guillaume Boivin. After reluctantly training about 40 drivers during the fall on Tuesday, the Montreal car fell again on Saturday, this time after being hit by an official car in the fifth and final stage in Belgium.
Boivin is entitled to the Marshal’s excuse, but for those who have spent a lot of energy participating in part of the day’s breakthrough (starting at 60 kilometers), the damage has already been done.
Thanks to the efforts of Nils Politt, teammate of the Israeli start-up nation, Boyfin was still able to rank in the 184-kilometer race between Ottini-Louwan la Newey and Grammont. 83 (+11 minutes and 16 seconds). At the same time, Politt completed the 23rd race (+1 minute 28 seconds) on this day, which marked the departure of approximately 60 drivers.
Mathieu Van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) has been more cautious this season. In addition to showing that he is an excellent cyclist in winning individual races, he also won the first place overall.
The Dutch champion started with two drivers in the Mur de Grammont race, 70 kilometers from the terminal, and caught up with the leading team. After 20 kilometers, the mountain bike world champion did not hold his breath.
Overall, Van der Pol is 8 seconds ahead of Dann Sauron Cragg Anderson (Sunweb).
The leader of the standings before the final stage, Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) slipped to fifth place, while Boivin finished 84th (+16:14).
