It was a successful Ster ZLM Toer for Lotto Soudal. André Greipel was the best in the second and third stage and he is the overall winner. The German is first in the points classification as well and Lotto Soudal is number one in the team classification.

 

Matt Brammeier won the final stage, he escaped in the last kilometres and was able to stay in front. Greipel finished on the second place, teammate Greg Henderson was third. In the general classification Greipel is sixteen seconds ahead of Yves Lampaert and Moreno Hofland. Jens Debusschere, fourth on La Gileppe yesterday, is seventh overall.

 

"Super nice week with @Lotto_Soudal boys and staff with GC win and 2 stage wins. Really proud of the team and lead out!!! Now happy to go home," Greipel tweeted.

 

“We came to the Ster ZLM Toer to win a stage," sports director Bart Laysen said. "The prologue was flat and ideal for sprinters. The team performed strongly there. That was already important for the victory of the team classification.

 

"Thanks to his good prologue André could put on the leader’s jersey after his stage win of Thursday. In that stage a reduced peloton sprinted for the victory, the day after it was a real bunch sprint. Greipel started a bit too soon and wasn’t at his best, but he could still beat Moreno Hofland. That’s strong.

 

“The overall victory wasn’t a goal in itself, we didn’t want to do the impossible to keep that jersey. But the Ardennes stage was perfect, other teams led the chase and Greipel could stay in the first group.

 

"Today there was a front group before the first intermediate sprint, where bonus seconds could be gained. Those escapees were caught in the finale. The attack of Brammeier made that Hofland wouldn’t be able to take sufficient bonus seconds in the sprint to get the overall win. André was second in the stage, Henderson third. Except for the crash of Adam Hansen all went well this week.”
