Mathieu van der Poel wins Tour of Flanders for 2nd time


OUDENAARDE, Belgium (AP) — Dutchman rider Mathieu van der Poel has come out of a four-man sprint to win the Tour of Flanders cobbled classic for the second time on Sunday. Two-time Tour de France champion Tadej Pogacar blew his chances in the race’s finale. Local favorite Wout van Aert of Belgium did not compete after testing positive for COVID-19. Pogacar was boxed behind rivals in the sprint and gestured in frustration as he crossed the line in fourth place. Dutch rider Dylan Van Baarle ended up runner-up ahead of Valentin Madouas of France.
