Bryan Coquard wins 4 Jours de Dunkerque

Kenny Dehaes (Wanty-Groupe Gobert) claimed his first win for his new team on the final stage of the 4 Days of Dunkirk. Having hit out from far, he narrowly held off the fast-finishing Bryan Coquard (Direct Energie) to open his 2016 account while Maximilano Richeze (Etixx-QuickStep) crossed the line in third. 

Coquard could console himself with the fact that he took the overall win with a 30-second advantage over Marco Frapporti while yesterday’s winner Xandro Meurisse was one second further adrift in third. With three stage wins and two second places, Coquard also won the points competition while Stephane Poulhies (Armee) was the best climber. Coquard was of course the best young rider and Etixx-QuickStep was the best team.
