Gilbert attacked with five kilometers to go in the 196 km race. Though he never enjoyed more than a 10-second advantage, the former world road champion still led by five seconds with a kilometer to go. But the peloton swarmed him after the final turn and Mark Cavendish (Etixx-Quick Step) took the win ahead of Alexander Kristoff (Katusha Team).
Drucker's finish was his first top 10 finish of the season and his best result at Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne.
