Tim Wellens
It was a perfect day at the office for team Lotto Soudal at the Tour de Wallonie as Tim Wellens secured the overall victory and Jens Debusschere Stage 5 success in a sprint finish.

Wellens was in second spot in the overall classification heading into the fifth and final stage, a mere three seconds behind Quinten Hermans of Telenet Fidea Lions, but reclaimed the yellow jersey courtesy of intermediate time bonuses.

It is the third year in succession that a Belgian cyclist has won the the Tour de Wallonie with Dries Devenyns and Dylan Teuns coming up trumps in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

You can watch highlights of Stage 5 on Fox Sports 2 tonight.
