Norwegian champion Thor Hushovd (Crédit Agricole) has triumphed in the first stage of the Four Days of Dunkirk, which finished in a bunch sprint in Marcq-en-Baroeul. Hushovd beat home Jimmy Casper (Cofidis) and Jaroslaw Zarebski (Intel-Action), with 121 riders finishing in the same time.

It was the first win of the year for the big Norwegian, who told Cyclingnews, "Last night I was saying to myself that I raced pretty good this year but no win yet wasn't normal. I had decided to take it easy in smaller races and give 100 percent in the big ones. Finishing 3rd in Milan-San Remo, 5th in Ghent-Wevelgem and 9th in Paris-Roubaix makes quite a good classic campaign, I believe. I'm particularly happy with the way I went in Roubaix because I got the feeling that I'll win this race one day."

With regard to today's sprint, Hushovd said it was close between he and Casper. "He told me afterwards that he saw me blocked near the barriers," said Hushovd of his rival. "When he finally opened the door, I had to go around another rider. I thought I had won but the judges needed the photo finish to confirm that I was 5 centimetres ahead."

The 154 km stage saw a very aggressive first 50 km, with no-one able to get clear before the first bonus sprint at Winnezeel. Thomas Voeckler (Bouygues) took this out ahead of Hushovd and Salomone (Barloworld), winning three bonus seconds. Salomone went onto take first place on the Mont Cassel climb at km 55, ahead of Gert Steegmans (Davitamon-Lotto) and Francesco Failli (Naturino). 30 km later, just before the Mont des Cats (km 87), Linus Gerdemann (CSC) broke clear and crossed the summit with a 23 second gap over Steegmans and Salomone.

Gerdemann and Steegmans' teammate Koos Moerenhout then got together and established a lead of two minutes over the peloton, with Gerdemann taking the third and final climb of the day at Mont Noir (km 101), giving him the climber's jersey. The pair were caught by the bunch with four kilometres left, as Cofidis and Credit Agricole wound it up for their sprinters. Casper looked to have it nailed with 100 metres to go, until Hushovd found a way around him and claimed victory.

Tomorrow's second stage is from Marcq-en-Baroeul to Lens over 204,1 km. It's an undulating stage with two seconds of pavés at Haspres and Haveluy, which could spice things up.
