The early break-away including Jérémy Roy (FDJ), Romain Hardy (COF), Yukiya Arashiro (EUC), Arnaud Gerard (BSE) and Antoine Lavieu (LPM) has been caught 3 km to go. Theo Bos won in a bunch sprint but it has been hard for him and must thank his team mates, in fact "Theo lost contact" tweeted Blanco "and three guys: Brown, Garate and Tankink waited for him. They chased for 30km and managed to comeback within the last 10km. Not much time for Bos to recuperate. Brown pulled the sprint and Theo won it. A great team effort. We wanted to set the record straight after our team lost in E3 yesterday. It is our 11th victory and we needed this one maybe the most."
Also Geschke didn't have it easy: "5th this morning at Criterium International. Team put me in a wonderful position. Unfortunately a spoke of my front wheel broke 500m to go"
Andy Schleck finished in the bunch: 53, Kloden 13, Monfort 21, Jungels 33, King 45, Hermans 58, Voigt 84 and Didier 110.
