Stage 2 - May 18: Saint-Quentin - Beauvais, 183.5 km

Clerc wins in redemption sprint

Aurélien Clerc of Mapei has won the second stage of the Tour de Picardie. The 22 year old Swiss beat Tom Boonen (US Postal) and Franois Simon (Bonjour )in the final sprint to take his ninth professional victory and eighth of the year after five stage wins in the Tour of Cuba.

Afterwards, Clerc sadi he was inspired to redeem the team's reputation after its troubles at the Giro d'Italia. "I was tense at the start. I was thinking about the business at the Giro. That gave me an extra source of motivation.

"I wanted to show that it was not the end of the world."

The stage was a mostly quiet one, with the action coming in the closing kilometres after the peloton swept up an early 'suicide break' by Damien Nazon (Bonjour), Eddy Lembo (Saint-Quentin Oktos) and Ivailo Gabrovski (Jean Delatour).

Nazon missed the previous day's break and was determined not to miss anything today, so he went up the road in the first kilometre, putting his energy down to "early morning good feelings." The trio forged a lead of eight and a half minutes before the peloton motivated to chase, and they were caught 8km from the line.
