Millar still within grasp of lead after epic day in De Panne

Sebastien Turgot wins, Three Days of De Panne 2010, stage 2

Scot David Millar is still within grasp of winning The Three Days of De Panne overall tomorrow following a hard-fought stage today in the driving rain of Flanders, Belgium. Frenchman Sébastien Turgot won from an escape group, while Millar finished 41 seconds back a second group with Italian Luca Paolini, the new classification leader.

"I expected the worst when I signed up to do De Panne," said Millar, "but today even exceeded my expectations. Gale force winds and rain made it nothing less than an epic day out in Belgium."
