Rabobank doing their share of the work to keep the race together.
Others who don't really want a bunch finish.
Philippe Gilbert scaring the poo out of the peloton. He took off with 10 km to go and wasn't caught until the 3 km mark.
On the left Andre Greipel (in the green points jersey) has come off Tom Boonen's wheel (in black, yellow and red Belgian champion's jersey) and is headed for home. On the far right Daniele Bennati (Liquigas green kit) is giving it his best.
Greipel takes not only the stage, the bonus seconds from the stage win give him the overall lead. He'll be wearing the leader's golden jersey tomorrow.
