Eijsden - Eijsden, 198.0 km

The Race: Holy Mackerel! This kid is really good. Young BMC rider Stefan Küng rode away from his two breakaway companions with 16 kilometers still to go, to finish a half-minute ahead of anyone else. This is Küng's first professional road victory. Two days before he had come in second to Bradley Wiggins in the 3 Days of De Panne time trial.

Earlier, seven riders had escaped the field, and with 40 kilometers to go, several riders bridged up to the break. With 22 kilometers remaining, Küng blasted away, taking Bert-Jan Lindeman (LottoNL-Jumbo) and Dimitri Claeys (Verandas Willems) with him. Then, six kilometers later, Küng shot away to win the race.

After the race, Küng said, "Winning solo is always the best way to win. When I was out there, I thought about the time trial at De Panne. In my head, I was thinking about how I did that one for training. Now I had to show that I was good."
