Eneco Tour
Stage 1: Terneuzen - Terneuzen - Stage Details

A chaotic finish took ORICA-GreenEDGE out of contention on a dramatic first day of the Eneco Tour today.

Strong winds, heavy rain and several crashes affected the first day of racing, including a nasty crash to sprinter Matt Goss in the final ten kilometers. 

Fellow sprinters Aidis Kroupis and Leigh Howard survived in the first group along with Jen Keukeleire, but lost each other in the run in to the final.

“The guys did pretty well to be up there under the circumstances,” sport director Matt Wilson said.
