Arnaud Demare takes victory, Eneco Tour 2013, stage two

France's Arnaud Demare (FDJ) sprinted to an outstanding win on stage two of the Eneco Tour, just over a week after winning in similair style at the RideLondon-Surrey Classic.

Demare had to navigate a climb just before the finish, but did so impressively as he beat World Champion Philippe Gilbert (BMC), who usually thrives on such terrain, into second. American Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Sharp) took third, as yesterday's winner and over night leader Mark Renshaw (Belkin) failed to contest the sprint having suffered an unfortunately timed puncture with three kilometres to go.
