Embedded image permalink
A break including Andre Greipel had tried to stay away in this hilly day 2 of the Challenge, Van Zyl was the last one to be caught.
A new front group formed and from there Cummings attacked solo, and solo he won.

Another good day for Italian cycling, with Davide Formolo 3rd.
Trek Factory Racing Bauke Mollema is just down the podium, not bad at all!
Nice day for Team Sky that put three men in the top ten plus Vasil Kiryenka 12th.

Steve Cummings:
“I’m really happy with today’s victory. I knew I had done a lot of good work over the winter so I’d like to thank the team for the amazing work they did and chance they gave me to focus on today’s race. I was able to come back to the front right near the end and snatch the victory, so I’m really happy with the result.” 

Jens Zemke:
“It was a great ride by Johann after attacking in the first 5km, staying clear all race and only getting caught in the final kilometers. Then Jacques went and put in a great move right at the end and this set up Steve perfectly. It is a brilliant result for us especially after yesterday’s misfortune, so we are really happy.”

Bauke Mollema:

"That was some high speed racing today! Very happy with the good teamwork of @TrekFactory! A pity to miss the podium, but the season is long!"
