Sanne Cant - in her European champion's skinsuit - extended her series lead.

British champion Helen Wyman continued her good start to the season.

Nikki Harris finished second and is making podium visits into a habit.

1st Sanne Cant (BEL); 2nd Nikki Harris (GBR); 3rd Jolien Verschueren (BEL).

De Krui - Zonhoven's huge sand pit.

Lars van der Haar is the only man to beat Van Aert this season but after a fall in the pit slipped to finish fifth.

Rob Peeters was understandably emotional after his podium place - Zonhoven in 2014 was the last race his father attended before his death from cancer.

Swiss champion Julien Taramarcaz finished eighth.

A good ride by David van der Poel in seventh place.

Michael Boros is a young Czech rider to look out for - he finished 18th.
