Swiss rider Aurélien Clerc won the first stage of the 67th Circuit Franco-Belge, taking the bunch sprint on a fast stage into Mouscron. Clerc got past Credit Agricole's Mark Renshaw and Quick.Step-Innergetic's Wouter Weylandt to take the first win of the season for the 28 year-old Bouygues Telecom rider.

The stage was marked by a long breakaway of two riders, Freddy Bichot (Agritubel) and Marco Marcato (Team L.P.R), who stayed away for 100 kilometres after escaping at the 60km mark. The pair gained a maximum 7'34" on the peloton before the chase ensued, and were ultimately brought back by the work of the T-Mobile team who was working for sprinter Mark Cavendish. Cavendish, however, was unlucky enough to suffer a puncture with two kilometres to go.

How it unfolded

179 riders rolled out for a neutral start from the Marché International Mouscronnois. The stage was set for 177.3km of racing. Action was initiated by Rony Martias (Bouygues Telekom), Kenny Dehaes (Chocolade Jacques - Topsport Vlaanderen) and Nico Mattan (DFL - Cyclingnews), but the three were soon caught.

Next up in the first few kilometers were Philippe Gilbert (Française des Jeux) and Matthieu Sprick (Bouygues Telecom), but they, too, were reeled back in.

Others continued to attack in the first 50km, but the peloton was not letting anyone go. Speeds were kept high with the average speed for the first hour clocked at 49 km/h.

At 44 kilometers, at the Côte de Saint-Maur, Gilbert took six points as he crossed the line first ahead of Juan Antonio Flecha (Rabobank), Fabian Cancellera (CSC), and Staf Scheirlinckx (Cofidis - Le Crédit par Téléphone).

Kilometer 62 was when Marcato and Bichot made their break, and they quickly gained 20 seconds on the rest of the field. Five kilometers later, the gap was up to two minutes and eight seconds. The two scooped up top points at the Musée du Tour de France at kilometer 78.

The duo continued to extend their lead, getting up to 7'34". Eventually T-Mobile took up the chase at the head of the peloton. Their efforts brought back 30 seconds initially. Chasing through the next two locations for points at 100km and at 119km, the peloton managed to close the gap to five minutes.

Then, Belgian Gilles Devillers (Storez - Ledecq Matériaux Belgium) suffered a crash and was taken from the course by ambulance.

With 40km to go, the chase became more organized. The gap then dropped more quickly, all the way to just 37 seconds with 10km to go and the leaders were finally caught with eight kilometers to go.

T-Mobile was driving to the finish and setting up their sprinter Cavendish, when he flatted with two kilometers to go. That left the door open for Aurélien Clerc (Bouygues Telecom) to take victory in the stage.
