Sanz, Sütterlin lead Blues in De Panne's final day
A ninth place by Enrique Sanz in the morning sprint of stage three in the Driedaagse De Panne – Koksijde and a 14th spot by a fine Jasha Sütterlin in the decisive TT were the best results for the Movistar Team behind dominator Alexander Kristoff (KAT), who took all three bunch kicks this week. Bad luck stroke the Blues' chances heavily, with Juanjo Lobato crashing out as he looked like the biggest reference for the Chente García Acosta-led group. All six starters in De Panne will stay in Belgium for two more days before racing the Ronde van Vlaanderen on Sunday.
