Pauwels prevails in Rumelange

Belgian Kevin Pauwels (Telenet-Fidea) showed his versatility on Flèche du Sud’s second stage, with the cyclo-cross rider outsprinting 96 rivals to win the stage. Pauwels held off Swedish National Team rider Linus Dahlberg and race leader Jean-Pierre Drucker (Continental Team Differdange) to win the bunch sprint.

Unfortunately for Pauwels there’s no time bonuses for the stage winner, meaning his still 16 seconds behind Luxembourg’s Drucker on general classification. The Belgian rider did move up four places on general classification, however, as 40 riders were dropped from the lead group on stage one.

The peloton enjoyed a surprise visit on the 158 kilometre stage from Kayl to Rumelange, with Saxo Bank rider Fränk Schleck reportedly joining the bunch while training in his homeland.
