Cycling – Binckbank Tour ’18 Stage 4: Jasper Stuyven Wins
With only 1 kilometer remaining, Trek-Segafredo utilised a sharp trick, to permit Jasper Stuyven the opportunity to break free and win stage five of the BinckBank Tour with a late assault.
Jasper Stuyven is a Belgian national and a professional cyclist, who currently represents the cycling team, Trek–Segafredo.

Stuyven lead the peloton through a tight chicane with 1km to go, and figured out how to get in front, after the colleague riding on his wheel cunningly dropped his pace to slow down the rest of the peloton.
In a close pursuit, that went to the last possible minute, Stuyven pretty much figured out how to battle off the peloton, from which Caleb Ewan won the dash to complete second in front of Zdenek Stybar who finished third in this race.
Having been @Jasperstuyven‘s team mate now for nearly a full season. I’ve seen him come so close to major victories all year and to be a part of his win today feels really special.
Really happy for you mate. All the @TrekSegafredo boys committed fully to a plan. And we delivered

Trek-Segafredo did spectacular work to set up the win, taking to the front of the peloton for the last couple of kilometers, paving the way to the conclusive chicane, and conveying their man to triumph.
I havent seen a tactic like that. They worked in front of the peloton 7-8 kilometers for one man breake in last km, not for sprint. Well done

Meanwhile, Matej Mohoric figured out how to broaden his lead in the general rankings, in the wake of increasing some time in the last kilometer.
