The 7-man pack was what remained of a group that had broke away from the rest 70 kilometres into the 248-kilometre race through East and West Flanders.
Wout van Aert completed the race in 5 hours, 45 minutes and 27 seconds. He was followed over the finishing line by the Italian rider Giacomo Nizzolo (Team Qhubeka-ASSOS). Another Italian, Matteo Trentin (UAE Team Emirates) came in third.
7th-placed Nathan Van Hooydonck and Gianni Vermeersch, who came in 10th, were the only other Belgians among the first 10 to finish the race.
