It seems that Greipel has revealed his secret power with which he wins small crap race upon small crap race to the people of Belgium. :)

Highlights supposed to be on ETB here, however the pelota is overrunning so coverage will probably be delayed by a few minutes.

Hm of course we have to put the races in the light of the calendar, (warming up races) it's still nice to see Dehaes back at winning a race.

I never understood why it came he won some nice bunch sprints when he rode for Vlaanderen and then once he went to Katusha and Lotto never could win one single race, not even a Kermiskoers...

Or Bennati.

But more importantly, Amets Txurruka was in the break of the day. Good to know that all that's changed in Ametsland is the colour of the jersey.
