Australian Mark Renshaw gave his soon to be extinct Crédit Agricole team a victory in the wet and cold second stage of the Circuit Franco-Belge on Friday. Renshaw powered past Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Chipotle) to take the stage. Farrar finished second for the second day running, but moved himself ahead of previous leader Tom Boonen (Quick Step). Jürgen Roelandts (Silence-Lotto) also finished in the same spot as in day one, taking third. Additionally, he took over the sprinter's jersey.

The very tough stage was made challenging by a curvy route, combined with heavy winds and relentless rain. This led to a long list of riders not finishing the race, a total of 27 riders. Only one rider saw the misery come beforehand. Brian Vandborg decided not to even start the race.

And then there were the northern Europeans in the form of Dutchman Paul Sneeboer and Belgian Sven Nevens. They didn't care about the wether and stormed ahead, just like the previous day. After 27 kilometres they were joined by another weather resistant rider, Niko Eeckhout. The trio quickly gained nine minutes on a frozen peloton.

In the first hour the bunch covered only a little more than 37 kilometres, but already the list of DNF's included the who is who. Steven De Jongh and Tomas Vaitkus headed the list. Despite De Jongh being out. Quick Step started the pace making.

The final parcours had to be covered three times. But starting to get to know the loop didn't make things safer, with the Belgian roads covered in mud and already offering a preview to the spring. Quick Step continued to chop away at the leader's advantage. The experienced Eeckhout realised he had to do something and slipped away from his two companions. But it was in vain, as the Topsport Vlaanderen rider was caught nine kilometres from the finish.

Just before entering Poperinge once again, the peloton split in half. Only the strongest stayed in front and about 60 riders headed to the finish together.

While Quick Step worked hard, they managed to not have anybody on today's podium.
