Graeme Brown walks in Belgium

Graeme Brown had hoped to win the sprint in the second stage of the Tour of Belgium, but instead he ended up walking across the line. When things got down to business in the sprint, he was cut off by another rider, resulting in a broken wheel.

The Australian had been in a good position, but ended up walking across the finish line as his colleagues rode past. "This was a very fierce stage," said Directeur Sportif Erik Dekker on the team's website, rabobank.nl. "The bunch sprint was absolutely disorganized, unfortunately."
