Anton Vorobyev wins Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen prologue

Russian time trial specialist Anton Vorobyev rides to victory in the 7km Three Days of West Flanders prologue.

Katusha’s Anton Vorobyev took his first win of the season in the seven-kilometer prologue of Belgium’s Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen (Three Days of West Flanders) in Middelkerke. The 24-year-old Russian set the fastest time before half of the start list had set out from the ramp, and his mark of 7:57 survived every challenger that followed to give him the victory by a comparatively large margin. The four-second gap between Vorobyev and second-place finisher Jesse Sergent (Trek Factory Racing) was the largest of any gap between sequentially-placed riders inside the top 100.

The race continues Saturday with a 174.1km Stage 1 from Bruges to Harelbeke.
