Driedaagse De Panne-Koksijde
Stage 2: Zottegem to Koksijde - Stage Details

Danish neo-pro Magnus Cort has sprinted to ninth on the second stage of Driedaagse De Panne-Koksijde this afternoon.

Cort was brought up to position for the final kilometres by his ORICA-GreenEDGEteammates and navigated a technical and messy finale that disrupted most of the lead out trains that had been formulated.

Alexander Kristoff (Team Katusha) won his second consecutive stage to increase his overall lead to 16seconds.

“Magnus is coming back after being sick so we know that he is not in the best condition,” sport director Laurenzo Lapage said. “But he is getting better and better every stage and he could show that today.”
