Race leader Philippe Gilbert (Omega Pharma-Lotto) prevailed in a four-man sprint in the finale of stage three at the Tour of Belgium, extending his general classification advantage and all but assuring overall victory tomorrow.

Gilbert outkicked Greg Van Avermaet (BMC), Björn Leukemans (Vacansoleil-DCM) and Bert De Waele (Landbouwkrediet) in Eupen at the conclusion the longest stage, 202km, of the five-day national tour.

The quartet were part of a larger, elite selection forming in the latter portion of the stage, but Gilbert attacked 30km from the finish and drew out Van Avermaet, Leukemans De Waele and Egor Silin (Katusha).

The quintet remained off the front through to the finish where Gilbert dispatched his rivals for the 28-year-old Belgian's eighth win of the season.

With one stage remaining, Gilbert leads Van Avermaet by 19 seconds and Leukemans by 35 seconds on general classification.
