Belgian rider Jasper Stuyven surprised the favorites to win Saturday’s Milan-San Remo one-day classic in Italy for the first ‘Monument’ success of his career. The Trek rider attacked late and held off the sprinters with Australian Caleb Ewan second ahead of last year’s winner Wout van Aert of Belgium. The 28-year-old Stuyven took the biggest win of his career with a well-time attack with 2.5km to go, sitting on Dane Soren Kragh Andersen’s wheel as Dutchman Mathieu van Der Poel began his sprint behind. Ewan, also second in 2018, and Van Aert overtook Van Der Poel late, but Stuyven had already won.
