Greg Van Avermaet of Predictor-Lotto pulled off a surprise win in Erfurt, Germany today, taking the 10-man sprint to become the first Belgian victor in the Rund um die Hainleite's 100-year history. Sven Krauss (Gerolsteiner) and Paul Martens (Skil-Shimano), finished second and third respectively.

Van Avermaet started his sprint with 200 metres to go. "I was sure then that I would win," the 22 year-old said. The young Belgian also expressed confidence in his fellow riders, in light of cycling's current doping cloud, saying, "I am sure, that especially the young riders who were on the podium today have nothing to do with doping."

The race was dominated by a five-man escape group of Marcel Kittel (Thüringer Energie Team), Niki Terpstra (Milram), Kevin Neirynck (Landbouwkrediet), Yoshimase Hirose (Skil-Shimano) and Mariusz Witecki(Volksbank), who held up to a seven minute lead over the peloton, which finally caught them with 20 km to go. Shortly thereafter, a 10-man group formed and stayed away to the finish.
