Yann Huguet handed Skil-Shimano it's second win of the season in the Dutch classic Hel van het Mergelland. The 25 years old Frenchman out-sprinted his companion in the escape, Jos van Emden (Rabobank).

The two riders escaped with 30 kilometres to go from a group of 22 riders in the pursuit of leader Simon Geschke (Skil-Shimano). The two caught Geschke and left him behind before battling for the finish in Eijsden.

“This victory was achieved because of the work of our strong team. During the entire race our team was all the time represented with several riders in the first ranks. Besides, I knew the roads here because in this area the team’s central trainings sessions always take place.”

Dominik Klemme (Saxo Bank) let the chase group home for third ahead of Geschke and Rabobank's Koose Moerenhout.
