Michael Van Stayen (Topsport Vlaanderen) won the bunch sprint to take victory in Thursday’s stage two of the Tour of Denmark in Randers.
Van Stayen pipped Matti Breschel (Saxo Bank) to the line, with Belgian Bert De Backer (Skil-Shimano) in third. Fresh from his debut at the Tour de France, Britain’s Jeremy Hunt (Cervelo) was fourth.
Van Stayen’s win moves him into the overall lead after Wednesday’s stage winner and overall leader Matt Goss (HTC-Columbia) came home in sixth.
The six-stage UCI 2.HC-ranked Tour of Denmark concludes on Sunday, August 8.
