The race: Here's the report from third-place Marc Hirschi's UAE Team Emirates.

Marc Hirschi took a fine 3rd place podium at the Circuit Franco-Belge in Belgium, with an uphill sprint battle with Biniam Girmay (Intermarche-Wanty) on the road from Tournai to Mont de l’Enclus (190.6).

Girmay would take a clear victory with Hirschi battling to third spot on the rise to the line.

Sjoerd Bax lit up the final 10km with an attack alongside Luca Mozzato (Arkea) and Rasmus Tiller (Uno-X) that looked like it with go the distance behind being swepped up with 800m to the line.

Hirschi: “We had Bax in the breakaway and I think he was super strong but just missing a bit of cooperation in that group. When it came back I knew it was up to me to sprint. I liked the finish and it suited me well but was just missing a little bit in the final. I think Girmay was the strongest today. My shape in general is good and I hope to be in the fight for wins again soon.”
