The Luxembourg champion powered away from the decisive break with 16 kilometres remaining and he employed his qualities as a rouleur to hold off the chasing peloton and land victory.
Oliver Naesen AG2R La MondialeDavide Ballerini, Magnus Cort Astana and Sebastian Langeveld EF Education First were the only men who could follow Jungels, and that quintet soon established a lead of a minute over a peloton that was still piecing itself together the fragmenting in the hills that dotted the middle section of the race. The quintet had 40 seconds in hand when they crossed the finish line for the first time with 30km to race, but while they collaborated smoothly, Jungels opted to attack alone with 16km remaining.
He quickly distanced his erstwhile companions, carrying a lead of 34 seconds in the final 10km. Jumbo-Visma and Bora-Hansgrohe performed the pace-setting duties on behalf of Dylan Groenewegen and Pascal Ackermann, respectively, but Jungels' teammates — most notably Yves Lampaert — performed a fine job of disrupting the pursuit.
The chase lost further momentum when Mitchelton-Scott stopped pulling after Matteo Trentin was distanced in the finale, and by the time Jungels reached the flamme rouge, it was already apparent that he had a winning gap. Doull clipped off the front of the bunch in the final kilometre with Terpstra, Lampaert and Jens Keukeleire Lotto Soudaland was rewarded for his endeavour across both days of Opening Weekend with second place.
But, as was the case so often last spring, the top step of the podium belonged to Deceuninck-QuickStep. Under wind and showers, the peloton rolled out from Kuurne, with the majority of those involved still feeling the effects of Saturday's Omloop in their legs. By the feed, the seven-man move had established a lead of over four minutes, while Alexey Lutsensko Astana was among the early retirements in the race. On the day's sixth climb, the Kruisberg, the break still had over three minutes on the bunch but their advantage almost doubled to seven minutes at the half-way point as the main field took their foot off the gas before a concentration of key climbs.
But it was Team Sky's Ian Stannard who did most of the damage, splitting the bunch on the lower slopes of the climb with a turn reminiscent of his Classics form of several years ago. Over the climb, the lead groups merged with a further batch of riders, including Bob Jungels, Andre Greipel and Matteo Trentin making contact.
Dylan Groenewegen and Pascal Ackermann both missed the split with Deceuninck-QuickStep once again driving the lead group with a number of riders in contention. By the time the quintet reached the penultimate climb of the Holstrat, they had 23 seconds over the second group, and over a minute on the defending champion and Ackermann.
With just under 50km to go the peloton, led by Jumbo-Visma and Bora-Hansgrohe, caught the Stybar group, but the five leaders still had over a minute's advantage as they crested the final climb of the race and made the long run-in back to Kuurne.
Jasper Philipsen, making his debut in the race, changed bikes with 33km to go, while the five leaders still held 55 seconds. By this point, however, Jumbo Visma and Bora had upped the tempo, and with a headwind, and then assistance from Mitchelton-Scott, the gap began to slowly drop. A lull in action was brought to a halt with 25km to go when Trentin was brought down in a crash.
The European champion took an age to regain contact with the break's lead dangling at just over 30 seconds. Jungels attacked the break with 16km to go and then tucked himself into something approaching a time trial position as he took the bell and settled down to the task at hand.

Not everybody who lined up at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad yesterday is on the start line in Kuurne this morning, of course, but teams who fell short in Ninove on Saturday afternoon have a chance to salvage their weekends at Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne today. There is a strong field of fast men on show here, but with 13 hills on the agenda, the terrain is there for willing attackers to upset the odds.
As ever, there is enough rugged terrain in the middle of the race to break up the peloton, but the flat final 50km gives the sprinters a chance to regroup. The climbs are as follows:.
The peloton is currently in the neutralised zone in Kuurne, and is due to reach kilometre zero at The first attack to gain any traction comes from Sean De Bie. The Roompot-Charles rider has a small gap over the peloton, but he will surely hope for some company.
Sean De Bie has been pegged back by the peloton, and the high speed in the early kilometres is making it difficult for a break to take form. There are accelerations aplenty on the front of the peloton, but as yet nobody has managed to forge clear. The temperature is a pleasant 12 degrees, though there has been some light rain in the Flemish Ardennes this morning and a risk of more in the afternoon. The pace has been searing thus far.
The first climb on the agenda is a little over 10 kilometres away, the Volkegemberg. At the moment, the selection looks more likely to come from the back of the race than the front. A group of 40 or so riders briefly lost contact at the rear of the peloton but there was a regrouping shortly afterwards.
Angelo Tulik Direct Energie abandons on the approach to the Volkegemberg. The pace remains brisk at the head of the peloton and as yet, no break has taken shape. The big news this morning concerns Stefan Denifl.
Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung and state broadcaster ORF reported that Denifl confessed to blood doping when interviewed by Austrian police last week. Denifl was questioned as part of the doping inquiry that saw five cross-country skiers arrested at last week's World Championships. Read more on this developing story here. They have a handful of seconds in hand for the time being, but will they be able to establish themselves? Naesen joins Cort, Turgis and Ligthart, and this quartet extends its lead over the peloton to half a minute.
As the seven leaders approach the feed zone at Zarlardinge, their advantage over the peloton stands at The peloton is reluctant to give this group too much leeway, and their lead has been promptly trimmed back to Denifl signed with CCC last October but parted by mutual consent in December before turning a pedal in anger for the team. Ochowicz said that the Austrian had asked to leave the team due to personal reasons.
I didn't ask a lot of questions. He said he wasn't able to do this [join the team]. So I said okay, fair enough. The seven leaders have extended their advantage once again, and it now stands at They are approaching La Houppe, the fourth hill of the day. The break has reached the day's fifth climb, the Kanarieberg, with a lead of over the peloton. Alexey Lutsensko Astanawho finished 4th at Omloop yesterday, has abandoned the race.
According to the team's Twitter feed, Lutsenko"quit the race to recover for his upcoming races. On the day's 6th hill, the Kruisberg, the break has a lead of over the peloton. Godon abandons the race. Over the Cote du Trieu, the break has a lead of on the peloton.At kilometres, the route features thirteen Flemish 'hellingen' before the final quarter of the race is played out on the flat.

Sky Sport, geo-restricted. Both guys have shown some good form already this year and I know both are hungry to get their first wins of the season. Just like in a lot of the other Flemish races, the Oude Kwaremont will play an important role, alongside the Kluisberg which quickly follows it.
The Kluisberg is now at just 50 kilometres to go; the change of parcours will make it harder for any chasing groups to get back to the front of the race or for teams to set up a bunch sprint finish. We also bring in Cees for the race, who has proved he is in good form after his win in Algarve and the guys will work to set him up if the day ends in a bunch sprint finish.

Said Vermote post-race: "I felt quite good today. Yesterday I was a bit off, I missed some important information at crucial points and that cost me some energy.
It was disappointing. I am always motivated to race my bike but today, the finish was just 2km from my house. I took my chance in the final, I had nothing to lose but believed I could do something. I got 12 to 13 seconds with the other 2 guys but on these wide roads, with a big bunch chasing, it's difficult. When I saw dropped them, and they were shouting in the radio for me to go, I kept pushing.Zondag 3 maart - Het parcours van Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne moet titelhouder Dylan Groenewegen tevreden stemmen, want het lijkt sterk op dat van vorig jaar.
In kilometer krijgen de renners dertien hellingen voor de wielen. De laatste, de Nokereberg, zit op 50 kilometer van de finish.
Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne staat te boek als een klassieker voor sprinters, maar dat valt eigenlijk wel mee. Vorig jaar dus, toen Groenewegen won. In pakte Sagan de zege in een sprint van vijf en in soleerde Stuyven naar de zege. Wat krijgen we dit jaar? Nadat de renners gestart zijn bij de renbaan in Kuurne duurt het een slordige 30 kilometer voor de eerste klim, de Volkegemberg, wordt gerond.
Na dat klimmetje van 2,2 kilometer zijn de renners ruim over de helft. De top van Oude Kwaremont zit op 85 kilometer van de finish.
Net iets meer dan 7 kilometer verder rijden de renners over de Kluisberg en vervolgens gaat het via de Tiegemberg en de Holstraat naar het laatste klimmetje, de maar meter lange Nokereberg.
Na de Nokereberg heeft het parcours een kleine 50 kilometer over vlakke wegen in petto. Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne besluit met twee lokale ronden van 15,3 kilometer.

For these reasons, companies using traditional CDNs will reach their breaking point in 2015. Google has been pushing for more online security, especially given all the breaches in 2014.
The major search engine has also started using HTTPS as an SEO ranking signal.
Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne 2019: Parcours
Here are the main reasons why connections made over SSL will double again:Traditional CDNs that dominate market share focus on their biggest clients and pay little attention to the mid-market.
Instead support tickets go hours or days without a response, only to be handed off to a less-than-knowledgeable staff or redirected to an outdated FAQ or unmoderated forum. At MaxCDN, we have an average ticket response time of under five minutes and a Net Promoter Score above 80. Customers will continue to become more sophisticated, with multi-CDN strategies becoming more common. Easy-to-use APIs and a consistent experience along with high performance and reliability will continue to separate the well-run CDNs from the rest of the pack.
HTTPS will become the mainstream. With the speed benefits from SPDY and the latest security issues (Snowden) there will be a huge movement toward an HTTPS-only internet.
Google already puts the pressure with SEO bonuses for HTTPS-enabled websites, and other companies like MaxCDN collaborate to provide free SSL. This means that all CDNs will need to adjust and embrace technologies such as SNI and SPDY, and at the same time reconsider charging extra for HTTPS requests.
This will push the Browser to become more of an operating system rather than Windows or Mac OS X. It is still years away, but I believe this initiative will encourage developers to write more software for the browser because it will have a near native feeling.
Content delivery networks will be a huge factor in this initiative. Assets will need to be as close to the last mile as possible to provide a native feeling. Progress bars that take over 2 seconds to load the content will be unacceptable to the UX.
DSA (Dynamic Site Acceleration) will be a huge feature that all CDNs will need to have in order to provide a positive user experience. The mobile growth trend will continue and more people will adopt mobile first methodologies. Designers, developers, ad networks, CDNs, and content providers.
Across the board, there will be more optimization and compression because of the Mobile First mindset. Mobile video delivery needs will expand, and there will be more tools that allow for editing videos on the fly.
