Balsamo retains rainbow run going at Gent-Wevelgem


It has been, by any metric, fairly every week for Elisa Balsamo (Trek-Segafredo). Already winner of the Trofeo Alfredo Binda final weekend and the Basic Brugge-De Panne midweek, the world champion accomplished a powerful hat-trick by sprinting to victory at Gent-Wevelgem.

The Italian was backed by a robust Trek-Segafredo squad all through the afternoon, although after making it safely throughout the ultimate ascent of the Kemmelberg, she endured a late scare when the entrance group briefly cut up with 12km remaining.
