Procycling: De Panne 2

Second day in De Panne and 122 km already done and dusted. There is a break-away of 10 riders including R. COBBAERT (BEL/CIB),B. HOEM (NOR/TJI),M. MCNALLY (GBR/WGG),P. ALLEGAERT (BEL/SVB),B. VAN GOETHEM (NED/RNL) L. NAESEN (BEL/WVA),B. PERRY (CAN/ICA),E. SHALUNOV (RUS/GAZ),C. DUNNE (IRL/ABS),S. VAN ZUMMEREN (BEL/VWC). Behind, the peloton has split and there are three  groups at about 2''. 
Two riders get off the peloton and are trying to bridge: A. KIRSCH (LUX/WVA) and P. LIGTHART (NED/RNL) have got a 15” on the rest of the bunch. Their move is successful: 12 riders in the lead.
57 km to go the gap is up to about 1'. The strong wind is playing a role.
..... SORRY! I have been busy :D 
Let's see how it ended.... It looks like a sprint, and Kristoff won on Theuns and Kittel.
