Kittel makes it two at Eneco Tour as Boonen moves into lead

Marcel Kittel wins stage four, Eneco Tour 2012

Marcel Kittel (Argos-Shimano) may have won his second stage of the Eneco Tour, but it was Tom Boonen (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) who took over the overall race leadership from the younger Belgian riding for Orica-GreenEdge, Jens Keukeleire.

True, Boonen edged the lead from the younger Belgian by a single second thanks to a second place in an intermediate sprint but it was perfectly in keeping with the race. Recall that Boonen missed out on taking the race leader's jersey by 0.7 seconds on stage two's team time trial, so it all evens out, in the karmic scheme of things.
