Mark Cavendish has won the Belgian semi-Classic, the Scheldeprijs, for the second consecutive year.
High Road's sprinter pipped Tom Boonen on the finish line in Schoten at the end of the 207-kilometre race.
The Quick Step rider, who won Paris-Roubaix with a powerful sprint on Sunday, thought he had it and raised his arms in celebration.
But Cavendish had the last laugh as he hit the line first. Australian Robbie McEwen was third.
