Who's afraid of the big bad Wolfpack?
First, the cobbled Classics where Deceuninck-Quick Step got off to a flyer with victory for Sam Bennett at the Oxyclean Brugge-De Panne Classic before winning the numbers game at the E3 Saxo Bank Classic, where Kasper Asgreen got the better of everyone, including Mathieu Van der Poel and Wout Van Aert.
On Sunday, though, Van Aert bounced back to win Gent-Wevelgem. But where does all this leave us with The Big One on Sunday? And can Deceuninck-Quick Step's wolfpack repeat what they did in Harelbeke?
Meanwhile, the stage racers were in Catalonia, where Adam Yates led a clean sweep of the podium for Ineos Grenadiers.
