Victory for Lars Bak

Lars Bak took his second victory this season thanks to a solo move in the finale of the Tour de la Region Wallonne. The young Dane of Team CSC caught up to group on his own. The group had escaped early in the stage and counted about 10 riders - among them teammate Matthew Goss.

"It was great – also 'cause it was such a brilliant way to win. It wasn't just some random group, which had escaped, so the fact that I was even able to catch up to them on my own was a major boost. But winning was totally perfect," said Lars Bak to CSC's team website on his way to the airport after the race.
