E3 Harelbeke: All Alone Now

Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) continued the seasonal reversal of his team today.  He made the perfect strategical move with about four kilometers left to race.  It was becoming obvious that Peter Sagan (Tinkoff Saxo) didn't have much left in his legs, so after Zdenek Stybar (Etixx Quickstep) did a pull at the front, Thomas attack the duo from the back quickly getting a gap on the pair.  Stybar waited just that briefest of moments hoping that Sagan would take up the chase.  Once he could tell the Slovak didn't have the power to go, he did his best to catch the Brit, but to no avail.  Thomas road alone to the line claiming the first British victory in the history of the E3 Harelbeke.  His victory continued the great opening of the 2015 season for Team Sky after their most disappointing 2014 season marred by injury and illness.
