Klaas Vantornout (Sunweb-Napoleon Games) has won the CX race in Ardooie. The 31 year old Belgian champion was victorious for the second year in a row. He finished solo before Albert and Walsleben.

Vantornout accelerated for the first time in the opening lap. Behind there was a small group with teammate Gianni Vermeersch. Klaas dropped the tempo, and let Gianni break away so the other riders had to do the work.

In the meanwhile, Albert was also able to catch up, and he closed the gap with Vermeersch. The decisive breakaway was formed by Albert, Walsleben and Vantornout. When Albert lost time because of a crash, Vantornout accelerated again and was able to finish solo. This was his first victory of the season.
