It is the sixth time in a row that Van der Breggen has won the Belgian cycling classic.

She absolutely did not receive it as a gift, because fellow countryman Vollering made it very difficult for Van der Breggen towards the finish.

Vollering eventually crosses the finish line third.

The Danish Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig comes in third.

Marianne Vos eventually crosses the finish line in ninth place.
