Greg Henderson, Team Sky's sprinter from New Zealand won the third stage of the Ster Elektrotoer in Holland on Friday.
His team-mate, Russell Downing, was second, with Denmark's Alex Rasmussen third on a stage that used many of the hills featured in the Amstel Gold Race Classic.
Team Sky's Peter Kennaugh got in the day's big break with three other riders and they were caught on the Cauberg with 44 of the day's 178 kilometres to go.
Sky and HTC-Columbia kept it together on the run-in so they could set up the sprint in Schimmert. Henderson, who was in the thick of things at the Giro d'Italia without grabbing a win, was first across the line.
It is Team Sky's 13th win of the season. So far they've won a team time trial (Tour of Qatar), one single-day race (Flecha, Het Nieuwsblad), one overall classification (Ben Swift, Tour of Picardie) and 10 stage wins.
