Elfstedenronde - Backaert and Devriendt show form in Bruges

Frederik Backaert finished top 10 in Elfstedenronde (1.1, 18/06) on Sunday. Early in the race a group of six riders went into the offensive. Tom Devriendt was one of them, his first breakaway this year after a knee injury. With 30 kilometers to go the breakaway was caught by a reduced group with Frederik Backaert. After a long day in the break Devriendt was still able to do his part of the work and show an improving form. The victory was contested in a sprint next to the "Brugse Vaart". Wout Van Aert won, Frederik Backaert took 8th spot.
