Dumoulin wins Eneco Tour time trial

Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Shimano) took a surprise victory on the second stage of the Eneco Tour. The Dutch national time trial champion beat Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing), with Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) rounding out the top three.

Cancellara looked like he had victory all sealed up after he became the first rider to dip under the 11-minute barrier around the 9.6km course with a time of 11:57. However, Dumoulin zipped around the course to beat the three-time World time trial champion by two seconds, for his third win of the season. The result is a boost to Dumoulin’s overall ambitions after a puncture on stage two saw him lose 14 seconds to the leaders.

"This is incredible, it's my first WorldTour win and so I'm really, really happy and satisfied with it," said Dumoulin. "I had some bad luck in the first two stages and I also got quite a few second places behind Tony Martin. He's not here and so I could finally get the win."

The 23-year-old has moved himself up to third in the general classification. Dumoulin now looks ahead to the remainder of the race where he hopes that he can better his second place of last year.

After rain and wind tormenting the riders during the opening two days of the race, they would have been glad to see dry tarmac for the time trial. The short out and back ride from Breda would still give the general classification a good shake-up.

Lars Boom (Belkin) put in an impressive ride that saw him finish only 19 seconds behind Dumoulin. Boom missed on taking the race lead in his hometown of Vlijmen on Tuesday but took the jersey 24 hours later after finishing ninth in the time trial. He began the day just one second behind race leader Zdenek Stybar (Omega Pharma-QuickStep), but beat the Czech rider by 13 seconds to put himself into the race lead.

"I think its going to be a weekend of hell," he suggested. "We've got a Flemish stage and then an Ardennes Classic stage just like the Amstel Gold Race."

Boom’s teammate Sep Vanmarcke was one of the rider to lose a significant amount of time, as did his compatriot Philippe Gilbert (BMC) The pair now sit at the bottom of the top 10, should be able to make much of it back in the coming days. Stage four of the Eneco Tour takes the riders into Belgium for the first time, from Koksijde to Ardooie.
