The Belarusian held off the challenge of home hope Joeri Stallaert and Dutchman Wim Stroetinga by the narrowest of margins as the 183km race was decided by a sprint.

The FDJ rider, who had already won the Coppa Bernocchi earlier this year, ended his season in style with his fourth victory in 2011.

Stijn Devolder and Bjorn Leuekemans were amongst the riders who tried to make a break from the peloton earlier in the race, but it seemed almost inevitable that they would be brought back into the bunch and the race go to a sprint finish.
