Geraint Thomas winning E3 Harelbeke was one of our highlights of the year in 2015, and with the race coming up on Good Friday what better excuse to relive his sensational late attack.

Having finished third the year before, Thomas took the race to his main rivals by launching an attack on the Oude Kwaremont.

The only riders who could go with him were Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) and Zdenek Stybar (Etixx-Quick Step) and the trio worked together until the 4km to go mark. The Team Sky man knew that he could not wait until the finish to beat the pair in a sprint, so he set off on his own and surged away from Sagan and Stybar.

The solo win was just one of Thomas’s stand-out moments in the 2015 season, winning the Volta ao Algarve and performing above expectations in the general classification for the best part of the Tour de France.

He won’t return to defend his E3 title in 2016, though, preferring to concentrate on stage racing, but Team Sky will have several cobbles powerhouses in the shape of Ian Stannard and Luke Rowe to try and retain the crown.
