By @sneaitsab

André Greipel has taken his second stage win in the Tour of Belgium. The Lotto Belisol rider beated Danny van Poppel and Tom Boonen in the bunch sprint after a hard stage with many climbs of the Tour of Flanders.

At the beginning of the stage, five riders were breaking away. Their gap was never high. At 30 km of the finish, the riders of Omega Pharma Quickstep put all its efforts to making some echelons. Just 25 riders could join them.
On the final climb of the day, the Congoberg, Philippe Gilbert attacked. Only Francesco Gavazzi and Niki Terpstra could follow the World champion. Lotto-Belisol didn’t had a rider in the break away, so they had to chase.
The team put all its efforts in the chase, and with 2 km to go Gilbert, Gavazzi and Terpstra were caught. The bunch sprint was won by André Greipel.
