Van Avermaet Runner-Up At Strade Bianche

7. March 2015 — Road Team

Van Avermaet was first to attack on the steep incline in the final kilometer, which momentarily gapped breakaway companions Alejandro Valverde (Movistar Team) and Stybar. But Stybar fought back and caught and passed Van Avermaet in the narrow, twisting streets leading to the finish in Piazza del Campo square.

The result was Van Avermaet's best of the season, adding to third-place finishes in stages at the Tours of Qatar and Oman.
