The Sprint:
Boonen had McEwen on his wheel, and Hushovd was behind McEwen. Zabel and Bennati were lurking behind McEwen too, as was Fred Rodriguez of Davitamon. Then Boonen went again. Meanwhile, Casper jumped around on the left and started to go. Boonen was washed away while Casper flew to the line.  People jumped on Casper's wheel and tried to come around, but couldn't manage it! Great win for Casper.
