The peloton was 50 seconds down with 60 kms to go, but had been down by 3 minutes earlier. In the last 20 kms there was a major move in the top group with an attack from Ozols, Van Daele and Talen. It was brought back rather quickly. By the last 5 kms, in a super finale, a new top group formed with Talen, who with his team mate, Van der Wolff was really hammering. Andy De Smet took advantage of a really good wheel and came over them to win the sprint. Aart Vierhouten was second from Frank Hoj and Van der Wolff.
