European champion Matteo Trentin was the top finisher for Mitchelton-SCOTT at today’s Tour of Flanders, the Australian team not featuring in the finale of the second monument of the season.
Trentin finished in 21st position, just under two-minutes down on solo winner Alberto Bettiol (EF Education First) after losing touch on the Kruisberg and being unable to re-join.
Alberto Bettiol (EF Education First) was the surprise victor of the day, attacking inside the final 20km and holding off an unorganised chase from behind.
