Sports Pedersen defeats Van der Poel in Flanders cobbled classic

WEVELGEM, Belgium: Denmark’s Mads Pedersen dug deep to execute a tactical masterclass when beating world champion Mathieu van der Poel to the line in the Gent-Wevelgem cobbled classic in Belgium on Sunday.

After around 100km together, the pair began their sprint in the final 500m with Van der Poel making a desperate last lunge before running out of steam as Pedersen then crossed the line with his Dutch rival already hanging his head.
