The Dutchman tried on the far left of the road, close to the grass side, to slide into the leading group when he thundered down off the screen. He lay there for a few minutes, but eventually, with some help, he was helped back to his feet.
In circumstances it seemed to go relatively well with the winner of the Tour of Flanders. He left the ride in Belgium dizzy, but at first glance without fractures.
Sports director Roodhooft fears a concussion: „Mathieu got off the road unhappy. His neck hurts and he has a headache. He is also very nauseous. We’re thinking about a concussion, so we’re going to have him examined at the hospital. This is sour, because we were in the process of winning the match. ”
After barely a few kilometers, it immediately became a good race in the Driedaagse Brugge De Panne. Partly due to the strong wind, the peloton was beaten to pieces by fans. Van der Poel had paid attention and was immediately in the front group, with many others.
Fans and chaos
The wind on the coast caused chaos and falls. The course was therefore shortened. At least, that was reported first. Later the ride was made longer. Again: chaos. It made for a great fight, the riders fell one by one.
35 kilometers before the finish, only 15 men remained in the leading group. Tim Merlier (Alpecin-Fenix) miraculously did not go on his record. Van der Poel went off roughly 15 km before the finish. He is said to have fallen because a gust of wind caught him. After his fall, he got into the team leader’s car and left the race.
Ultimately, Yves Lampaert (Deceuninck-QuickStep) managed to control the course in the final phase.
