Gent-Wevelgem: A Long Lonely Road

Jurgen Roelandts (Lotto Soudal) went out for a long, long solo break.  As he came out of the small town of Dranouter, he had roughly two minutes on the chase group behind and a very long open road stretching out before him.  It is a tall order to stay off the front by one self, but Roelandts wasn't going to let the odds dissuade him.  While a break away rarely wins the day, Jens Voigt explains the effort, "If you go in a break you have a 10% chance of winning the race, if you don't, you have a zero percent chance."
