Lorena Wiebes won a long sprint at the Lotto Belgium Tour after windy, flat stage first road stage on Wednesday.

The former Dutch champion benefitted from the excellent work of her DSM team who kept her in position throughout the 102.2km race. Dropped off around 150m from the line, she was the clear winner, beating Jolien D’hoore, though it is the Belgian who takes the general classification lead after by way of a better prologue finish.
