The 2019 Favorites
One of the important biggest names in the sprinting second and third divisions has come ahead for E3 this year. France’s Bryan Coquard will still be able to try to make up for his terrible and poor 2017; he was as soon as already finished on the podium five times in 2018. Pascal Ackermann will be leading the Bora fee. He accomplished the third position within the Handzame classic last week so seems to like racing in Belgium.
Adrien Petit had a doomed late breakaway at the GP Denain final weekend that also seen him finish tenth, a 4th in Le Samyn and a victory in Paris-Troyes suggests some kind in his legs. Jens Keukeleire accomplished 2nd in Gent-Wevelgem last year so naturally could make it over the Kemmelberg in simply good shape. There’s no motive he can’t make it over the lumps near the finish.
