Greipel takes another one

Team Columbia sprinter André Greipel won the Kampioenschap Van Vlaanderen, taking his 14th win of the season. He beat Stefan Van Dijk (Mitsubishi-Jartazi) and Andreas Stauff (Continental Team Milram) in the bunch sprint.

Greipel extended his winning season from January, when he dominated the Tour Down Under, through September. "This year just can't get any better," the 26 year-old said, adding that it was "wonderful that I'm still able to get the wins in as late as September."

The German won the way he has most of the season: his team caught a breakaway group and set him up in perfect position for the sprint. "There was an attack which we reeled in about 10 kilometres to go. After that we kept things under control as best we could, and [Columbia teammate] Roger Hammond gave me a lead-out until about 300 metres to go. At that point I went for it, it was a flat, easy finish, so I had a good lead when I crossed the line." (SW)
