Defending champion Iserbyt moved immediately to the head of the race. Tried for the first time his opponents by surprise but at the end of the first round he had six riders in the track suffer, including, Pidcock and Benoist. Iserbyt continued to pressure but the Swiss Rouiller and Pidcock were the West-Flemish are not committed, also the Italian Dorigoni closed easily with Benoist, Loockx and Kielich in the track.
Iserbyt remained in the openingsrondes for the offensive choice but had to sit by and watch how the others are of no districts wanted to know. A mandatory fietswissel for Pidcock caused the Brit to the back of the large lead group went. For Iserbyt been a signal to accelerate but the Swiss Kuhn and Rouiller klampten. Iserbyt was eventually his hole but also Pidcock moved again in the direction of the Swiss duo.
