VIDEO: JULIAN ALAPHILIPPE’S CRASH AT FLANDERS

One lapse of attention was all it took

Mathieu van der Poel won the Tour of Flanders on Sunday for his first Monument victory marked by world champion Julian Alaphilippe’s heavy fall after colliding with a motorbike. Alaphilippe broke away from the pack 40km from the finish, only van der Poel went with him, van Aert missed the move and as a result had to use up vital energy catching the two leaders on the cobblestones of Taaianberg.

Alaphilippe’s injuries are still unknown.
