Russell Downing gave Team Sky a boost after a disappointing Tour de France, by taking overall victory in the five-day Tour de Wallonie stage race in Belgium.

Downing won the final stage in Lontzen with a long sprint. He got a perfect lead out from his Teammates and just had the speed to beat Stefan Van Dijk (Verandas Willems) to the line. Tony Gallopin (Cofidis) was third and Wouter Weylandt (Quick Step) was fourth.
Downing started the stage in fifth place overall, eight seconds down overall, but snatched the yellow jersey by two seconds thanks to the stage winner’s time bonus.

Marco Marcato (Vacansoleil) finished two seconds behind, with stage four winner Laurent Mangel (Saur – Sojasun) third at three seconds.

It was Downing second victory of the season after he also won stage two of the Criterium International in late March.
