Francisco Ventoso of Carmiooro-NGC won the sprint finish of the first stage of the Ster Elektrotoer. He topped Graeme Brown (Rabobank) and Romain Feillu (Vacansoleil).

Top favourite sprinter Andre Greipel punctured 14 km before the finish, and finished only fourth, directly ahead of Saxo Bank's Lucas Sebastian Haedo.

Prologue winner Jos Van Emden (Rabobank) held onto his race lead, but admitted it was difficult in the finale.


It was the second victory of the season for the 28-year-old Ventoso, who said it was “unbelievable to win a stage against so many ProTour teams.”

"I was on the right wheel. It was a fast and straight sprint,” he said. Ventoso was looking forward to doing equally well in Friday's climbing stage, saying, “Actually I like more of a hilly course."

A six-man group was away for much of the stage. Arnoud van Groen (Vacansoleil), Sébastien Delfosse (Landbouwkrediet), Pieter Vanspeybrouck (Topsport Vlaanderen), Marco Bandiera (Katusha), Cornelius van Ooijen (Cycling Team Jo Piels), and Jack Vermeulen (Van Vleit EBH Elshof) got away only 8 kilometres into the stage, and weren't caught again until there were 17km left.
