Former Australian time trial champion Luke Durbridge powered to victory today on the final stage of Driedaagse de Panne.
The 25-year-old blasted around the 14.2kilometre time trial course to produce an impressive time of 17minutes and 38seconds to finally round off his impressive run of form with a win for ORICA-SCOTT, his first victory of the 2017 season.
"I am really elated to get the win, I have been really consistent lately but a win is totally different," Durbridge explained after the finish. "It has been a while since I have had a win so I am really happy with today."
