Romain Feillu (Vacansoleil) won the GP de Formies for a second consecutive year, beating Italy’s Davide Appollonio (Cervelo TestTeam) and Belgium’s Kenny Dehaes (Omega Pharma-Lotto) in the 100-rider sprint finish.

Alexandr Pliuschin (Katusha), Jérôme Coppel (Saur-Sojasun), Jean-Marc Bideau (Bretagne), Mathieu Ladagnous (FDJ) and Rein Taaramae (Cofidis) were on the attack for most of the stage but were pulled back with 20km to go and the final attacks on the rolling finishing circuit were kept under control, allowing Feillu to strut his stuff and give Vacansoleil another important win.
