Tour of Belgium - Final
 
Jeff Louder is the rider who drew all the attention today. An American from Landbouwkrediet Colnago was in the lead for over 100 km in the last stage of the Tour of Belgium going from Mechelen to Marche-en-Famenne. He got caught with 2 local laps (about 25 km) to go by Milesi (Domo-Farm Frites) and Clain. They stayed in the lead for a short while, but even the small climbs in the last km's didn't prevent the stage from ending in a mass sprint. Jan Svorada (Lampre) was the strongest there, just like in the first stage from Oostende to Knokke. In the general classification, Bart Voskamp wasn't threatened anymore so he takes the leader's jersey home. Second at 11 seconds in the GC was Ludo Dierckxens.

Stay tuned on the Daily Peloton for an interview with Jeff Louder!
