Victor Campenaerts' determination to at least score a podium at his home race of Dwars door Vlaanderen culminated in the Belgian grinding his teeth together so hard one of them broke. 

The Lotto-Soudal rider launched a stinging move from the leading group and built up an ever-increasing gap to around six seconds as the chasers attempted to reel him back. His lead stayed intact for a while though, and it was only until six kilometres were left to race when Tisej Benoot (Jumbo-Visma) and Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers) eventually managed to bridge across to Campenaerts.
