Kevin Pauwels (Sunweb-Napoleon Games) has won the BPost Bank Trofee in Essen.

Sven Nys dominated the early stages of the race, but was set back after a spectacular crash in which he hurt his wrist. Pauwels looked reborn after his victory the week before, and immediately took the lead. It was soon obvious that no one was able to close the gap. Pauwels finished solo, an impressive Nys was 2nd, Albert 3rd.
Wout Van Aert won the race with the U23 riders on his Yellow Ridley X-Night.

The day after Essen, there was a Worldcup race in Namur (BE). Pauwels wasn't fully recovered, and was also suffering from a cold. His teammate Vantornout finished on a 2nd place.
