GREIPEL TAKES ENECO TOUR STAGE 2
German sprinter Andre Greipel (Columbia) won today's second stage of the Eneco Tour in Nieuwegein, Holland.
Greipel - who is often a key player in team-mate Mark Cavendish's lead-out train - edged ahead of Juan Haedo (CSC-Saxo Bank) in the rain-soaked bunch finish.
2007 winner Jose Gutierrez (Caisse d'Epargne) retains the overall race lead by a slim margin ahead of Edvald Boasson Hagen (Columbia).
Britain's Jeremy Hunt (Credit Agricole) came in 27th at the same time as Greipel, with Roger Hammond (Columbia) in 37th.
Tomorrow's stage is also based in Holland - a 185.9km jaunt from Nieuwegein to Terneuzen. The following day (Sunday) the race heads into Belgium.
