Museeuw, heavily spattered rather than caked in grime, wins his 10th World cup race in classic style in 6:37.57, with his pursuers not even at the final section of pavé.

Wesemann dummies Boonen into leading out on the entrance to the track, and takes second ahead of the much less experienced Belgian.

Tristan Hoffmann leads in Lars Michaelsen and George Hincapie in a very tired sprint for 4th place.

In the post-race interviews Museeuw refuses to be drawn on the matter of his next move - it is going to be "a surprise". Which may of course mean that he hasn't made up his mind yet. Wesemann has yet to join the ranks of classic winners as he surely must; Boonen is a massive revelation for the classics in the future.

Thanks for following the race with - we hope to see you again for our next live coverage from the Flèche Wallonne this Wednesday, 17 April.
