One-Two for Gerolsteiner

Robert F÷rster and Sven Krauss of Team Gerolsteiner took out a one-two win in the sprint finish of the Dutch Food Valley Classic, formerly called Veenendaal-Veenendaal. Krauss led out the sprint for his team-mate and was able to follow him across the line, several bike lengths ahead of the peloton.

"Kraussi really did a top job. That was perfect," said F÷rster, after only his third victory of the season. "It's a great feeling, when you win. Then you know why you work so hard. And I knew that I could do it. You just have to believe in yourself."

An eight-man strong escape group had a slight lead over the peloton and was caught only 800 meters before the finish line. Shortly thereafter Krauss pulled out to start the sprint for F÷rster, and the pair just kept going. Third place went to Niko Eeckhout of Topsport Vlaanderen.
