Lotto-Adecco took command of the second day of the Driedaagse de Panne, with a strong solo victory by Hans de Clercq. The Belgian attacked the 20 man top group with less than 30 kilometres to go, powering his way to a 30 second lead which he managed to hold for long enough to win the stage. In second place was De Clercq's teammate Nico Eeckhout, who outsprinted Romans Vainsteins (Domo) for the result.

The 235 kilometre stage started in Zottegem in wet, windy conditions, and many of the riders were clearly not looking forward to such a long day in the saddle. Three riders - Gian Mario Ortenzi (Mercatone Uno), Andrej Hauptman (Tacconi Sport) and Scott Guyton (Flanders) - opened up a large lead over the peloton that was gradually disintegrating on the windy, narrow roads.

Guyton was dropped over the Kemmelberg, while the other two continued on with an 12 minute lead with 90 kilometres to go. There were approximately 25 riders left in the first peloton, with Lotto (Eeckhout, Van Hyfte, De Clercq), Rabobank (Dekker, Vierhouten), Domo (Museeuw, Vainsteins, Knaven, Peeters), US Postal (Ekimov, Hincapie, Cruz, Vandevelde), Cofidis (Mattan, Peers, Gaumont), as well as Salius Ruskys (Gerolsteiner) and Latvian champion Arvis Piziks (CSC).

Despite such a huge lead, Ortenzi and Hauptman were clearly struggling into the headwind as they rode towards Koksijde. It took just 30 kilometres before they were caught, and it came down to a battle between the teams that wanted the stage win, versus the teams who were riding for GC.

On the finishing circuit in Koksijde, a threatening attack by Nico Eeckhout (Lotto) and several others forced the pace up, as US Postal closed it down. Then with 30 kilometres to go, Hans de Clercq launched himself off the front in a bold move. Despite the strength of the other teams in the leading bunch, no-one was willing to chase down De Clercq, especially as the other Lotto riders were looking quite strong.

De Clercq's lead quickly grew to 30 seconds with 25 kilometres to go, and he held this over the next 15 kilometres. Despite the hard work of Museeuw, Knaven, Peeters (Domo), and Cruz (USPS), the gap did not diminish. Rabobank wasn't bothering to chase, as they weren't riding for the stage win although Erik Dekker did try an unsuccessful move with 2 kilometres to go.

However, Hans de Clercq still led by 18 seconds at that point, and that was more than enough time for him to take the stage win and the overall classification. Nico Eeckhout pipped Vainsteins to give Lotto the 1-2, capping off another good day for them.

"When I was on the last lap as the leader, I thought: It can be done! I went very deep," said 32 year old De Clercq, winner of the Classic Haribo last month. He also commented that US Postal rode really hard to pull back the break after Eeckhout had attacked. "Let them chase a bit," he said.

It will be hard for de Clercq to hold off the others in tomorrow's finale - a 114 kilometre road stage in the morning followed by the deciding 14 kilometre time trial in De Panne in the afternoon. Could this be another one for Ekimov, or will Eeckhout, Mattan or Knaven prevail?
