Omloop Het Nieuwsblad - Men - Race Overview

Magnus Cort was the highest place finisher toady for ORICA-SCOTT taking 16th place in a chaotic opening to the one-day Belgium classic, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.

Half-way into the race, ORICA-SCOTT’s luck began to fade with mechanical problems and a couple of riders being caught up in crashes, which inevitably effect the teams momentum and aims of a top result.

“We had some bad luck today, Sam Bewley was in a crash and had to abandon, he had pain in his knee but thankfully there is nothing broken,” explained sport director Laurenzo Lapage. “Jens Keukeleire was also involved in a crash, he could finish the race but then was out of the front group.”
