Saturday Results Thread: Langeveld Outslings Arrow!


Sebastian Langeveld of Rabobank scored the biggest win of his career today, by a centimeter or two, over a hard-charging defending champ Juan Antonio Flecha at the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. Langeveld went on a long solo breakaway with over 40km to race, and while Flecha chased him down powerfully after emerging alone from a disorganized chase effort, Langeveld recovered enough to battle through a difficult, slightly uphill sprint for the narrow win over his former teammate.

Emma Johansson won the Women's Omloop for the second year in a row in a bunch sprint. Alona Andruk won stage 5 in the Tour of New Zealand, while Judith Arndt came in eighth, 35" back, to hold on to the overall GC win. [Yes, it's Sunday in NZ, race is over.] Click on links below for more results.
