Alexander Kristoff (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux) proved his incredible strength at Scheldeprijs today as he powered away from the rest of the field with an impressive solo attack.

The Norwegian broke away from the leading group with 7km still left in the race, and without a counter-attack forthcoming, he managed to build a gap of over 20 seconds as he crossed the line. Comfortably crossing the line in first-place, no other rider had an answer to deal with Kristoff.
