Jasper Philipsen (UAE Team Emirates) won the first stage of the 2020 BinkBank Tour.

The Belgian sprinter pushed clear of the remains of the field, including Pascal Ackermann (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo).

A massive pileup marred the stage bringing down nearly half the peloton, with just four kilometers to go.

The crash appeared to have been caused by Guillaume Boivin (Israel Start-Up Nation) when he looked over his shoulder and touch wheels with the rider just ahead of him. Boivin went down and brought dozens of other riders to a screeching halt.

Oliver Naesen (AG2R – La Mondiale) appeared to have an injury to his right leg, and pedaled across the line with just his left side, and with some help from Dries De Bondt (Alpecin-Fenix).

The AG2R – La Mondiale rider said, “The moment I fell I had a new wave of riders fall on top of me. My bike turned 180 degrees under my body while my foot was still clipped into my pedal. So I fear a joint problem, an injury to the ligaments of my knee. It does not make sense to have a scan because my knee is too swollen.”

Deceuninck-Quick-Step’s Stijn Steels, who can be seen holding his wrist, was able to collect himself, get back on his bike, and limp across the finish line.

Bora-Hansgrohe, and Trek-Segafredo controlled the front of the race for the majority of the day, in an effort to place Pedersen and Ackermann in the best positions for a field sprint.

A two-man break got only as far as two minutes up the road before teams got concerned about the gap.

Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix), Mike Teunissen (Jumbo-Visma), and Yves Lampaert (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) each won one of three consecutive intermediate sprints.

In the final six-kilometer circuit Bora-Hansgrohe, Israel Start-Up Nation, and EF Pro Cycling did the heavy lifting to ensure their respective sprinters were in good position for the dash to the line.

Ahead of the group of fallen riders, Bora-Hansgrohe clicked into sprint-train mode for Ackermann, with Deceuninck-Quick-Step doing the same.

Ackermann was the first to go, however, Philipsen took advantage of this early move, and came around the fading German in the final few meters.
