VDK-Driedaagse De Panne-Koksijde
Stage 2: Oudenaarde - Koksijde - Stage Details

Mark Cavendish won a chaotic field sprint to cap off an animated second stage. Leigh Howard and Aidis Kruopis had an 'off day' and were unable to contest the finish. The results belie the effort on stage two. ORICA-GreenEDGE has been an active force from start to finish.

"The team spirit was great today. The way I see Stuey [Stuart O’Grady], Jens [Mouris] and Cookie [Baden Cooke] riding gives me good feelings thinking about Tour of Flanders on Sunday. Durbo [Luke Durbridge] and Heppy [Michael Hepburn] are showing that they will come back to Belgium in the future with even bigger ambitions. Tomas [Vaitkus] is just coming back from his knee injury and the way he rides confirms that he is recovering well." - Sport Director Laurenzo Lapage
