This was a flat stage well suited to the sprinters. The early breakaway featured four riders: Jef van Meiraeghe (Topsport-Vlaanderen), Patrick Konrad (Bora-Argon 18), Johann Van Zyl (MTN-Qhubeka) and Simone Andreetta (Bardiani-CSF). They were allowed to forge on to collect bonus seconds at the 2 intermediate sprints en route before the peloton wound up the chase with the sprinters gunning for glory. Who would come out on top?
