Andy Schleck continued to win post-Tour de France criteriums on Friday night, beating Jurgen Van den Broeck and Alexander Vinokourov in the Cibel Na -Tourcriterium Sint – Niklaas, in Belgium.
Schleck soloed to victory on home roads in the Gala Tour de France in Luxembourg on Thursday, where he confirmed he and brother Frank are to leave the Saxo Bank team at the end of the season.
Ivan Basso and Fabian Cancellara also rode the Flemish criterium as part of a 37-rider field that entertained an estimated 60,000 crowd.
After a fast start to the 45-minute race, Cancellara took off with Vinokourov eight laps from the finish. They were joined by Schleck, Van den Broeck and Basso but then Van den Broeck attacked again, taking Schleck and Vino with him.
Schleck, wearing his white Tour de France best young rider jersey, won the sprint ahead of Van den Broeck and Vino. Cancellara won the sprint for fourth, 18 seconds back.
