Yves Lampaert had been in contention for a podium finish but suffered a heavy fall after a clipping a spectator with 8km remaining.

Van Baarle, who finished second in the Tour of Flanders earlier this month, caught up with the leading pack with 25km to go.

The 29-year-old then accelerated on a cobbled section just 6km later to give himself a dominant lead.

“I could not believe it when I went onto the velodrome,” said Van Baarle.

“I looked on the other side to see if there were other guys but it was just me.”

Jumbo-Visma’s Van Aert, who missed the two previous weeks of racing after contracting Covid-19, outsprinted Groupama-FDJ’s Kung in the open-air velodrome to finish second.

Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl rider Lampaert, who conceded after the race that he was only racing for third, clipped the hand of a spectator while on a cobbled section.

His bike flipped and, despite being able to resume racing, the Belgian could only finish 10th.
