    Posted on 20th August 2018 at 9:25 am

Matej Mohoric (Bahrain-Merida) had never raced on the cobbles of Flanders as a professional rider until Sunday's concluding stage of the BinckBank Tour, and, by late afternoon, the experience had grown on him. It helped, of course, that he successfully limited his losses to stage winner Michael Matthews (Sunweb) to secure overall victory in the week-long race. "It […]

    Posted on 19th August 2018 at 5:19 pm

    Even amid the ecstasy of cheering and applause at the end of the final stage of the BinckBank Tour in Geraardsbergen, Michael Matthews made himself heard.
