Degenkolb Takes Gent-Wevelgem

What a difference a week makes!

he is really strong at the moment.

“Koen de Kort positioned me perfectly in the finale, driving me onto Sagan’s wheel and I had the right position and could come through at the right time so it was a fantastic sprint. I am a very happy man.

“My shape is good, and this is a good sign for the next big races. Last weekend at Milan-San Remo was probably one of the most disappointing moments of my career, and today everything went 100 percent better than last week so I can forget about that disappointment now.”

Degenkolb, Sagan, and others will cross paths at the Tour of Flanders next Sunday. How will they fare? Check in at and find out!
