Elite Men Road Race: Kerkrade
Niki Terpstra of Omega Pharma-QuickStep won his second Dutch road title. He soloed in to the finish in Kerkrade in the heavy rain, which had reduced the field to only a handful. Lars Boom (Rabobank) and Bert-Jan Lindeman (Vacansoleil-DCM) broke from the small group of chasers in the final lap of the circuit to take second and third respectively, about two minutes later.
Terpstra, who had previously won the title in 2010, took off with about 40km to go. The race was marked by exceptionally bad weather and multiple crashes resulting in fewer than 20 finishers.
