At the end, Benoît Cosnefroy won the Flèche Brabançonne. In a final sprint, the French runner beat the Belgians Tim Wellens and Dylan Teuns. “I launched into a first breakaway three laps from the finish, I told myself that it was up to me to toughen up the race,” he explains to Eurosport. In the last lap it was very hard for me, but the final sprint was perfect.”

“Here I feel at home,” he said on the L’Équipe channel. The Frenchman will arrive full of confidence for the Ardennes Classics, which will begin with the “Monument” Liège-Bastogne-Liège, on Sunday April 21. “It’s better to start the Ardennes with a victory, we’re happy for the team,” adds the rider from the Decathlon-AG2R La Mondiale team.

By winning this title, the Norman has his 4th victory this season, and succeeds another Frenchman, his teammate Dorian Godon. His next race will take place this Sunday, with the 58th edition of the Amstel Gold Race, where he will have to take his revenge after a disappointment in 2022.
