The Race: 2013 Eneco Tour winner Zdenek Stybar is back in the lead after winning stage two.

It was another rainy day in northern Europe and only twenty riders arrived in the front group to contest the stage.

A trio, Kevin van Melsen, Pavel Brutt and Alexis Gougeard, escaped early on and gained nearly six minutes, but all three (Brutt being the last to give up) had been rounded up with a little more the four kilometers to go.

Czech road champion Stybar's stage win earned him a 10-second bonification, enough to give him the GC lead by a single second over Lars Boom.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) is a 9.6 km individual time trial at Breda (Netherlands). Expect some serious changes to the GC.
