McEwen Takes Second Stage today.
Super Sprinter Robbie McEwen (Davitamon-Lotto) won the second stage today with CSC's Matti Breschel in a close second as the race finished in a bunch sprint. Sergey Lagutin of Navigators initiated a break at the 25km point in the race and joined by 3 Belgian riders, but the story was hardly told, when all hopes were dashed by the sprinters team drive which brought the brave lads back to the fold 10kms from the finish to set up the bunch sprint.
