Cedric Vasseur wins in France

Cedric Vasseur (Quick.Step) won the 60th Grand Prix d’Isbergues for the second time, after his victory in 2002. It was his first victory of the season after he beat breakaway companion Philippe Gilbert (La Française des Jeux).

The breakaway started at the end of the first hour of racing, when 12 riders escaped. A bit further on, Philippe Gilbert (FDJ) and Johan Van Summeren (Davitamon) chased together for 20 kilometres to close the gap and joined the breakaway at km 55. Behind them, the peloton including the reigning world champion Tom Boonen, let the race go, slowly riding through the sunny Artois area (North of France). With 50 km to go the bunch was 11 minutes down.

Stephane Augé (Cofidis) and Ciarán Power (Navigators) were dropped from the leading group, and with 27 km to go Cedric Vasseur (the local man who married a local girl in Isbergues a few years ago) tried his luck. Gilbert jumped on his wheel. Behind them nobody was inclined to lead the chase, even though only Gilbert (Guesdon) and Vasseur (Van de Walle) had teammates in the breakaway, so the two men went clear rather easily.

With 6 km to go, Vasseur who knew perfectly that Gilbert was in outstanding form after his wins in GP Fourmies and GP Wallonie, did not do any more turns. And despite a strong challenge by the FDJ man in the last finishing straight, Vasseur won by half a length over Gilbert, to the great satisfaction of the crowd.

Following the race, Quick.Step's Belgian contingent who will ride the World's, Tom Boonen, Serge Baguet and Nick Nuyens, did an extra 1.5 hours training for a total of 260 kilometres.
