With 186.1 kilometers of flat road, Ster ZLM Toer - GP Jan van Heeswijk Stage 2 looked set to be the backdrop for a bunch sprint but it was not meant to be as the day’s breakaway were able to hold off the charging peloton behind them.

Despite chasing hard over the final circuit in Oss, the peloton were unable to catch the three remaining riders of the day’s early breakaway.

While the bunch could be seen chasing hard in the background, it was Wesley Kreder (Roompot - Orange Peloton) who eventually won the stage ahead of his fellow breakaway riders.

Taylor Phinney and Stefan Küng both finished safely inside the main bunch to maintain their second and third spots on the General Classification, behind Team Lotto-Jumbo’s Jos Van Emden

Quotes from the Sports Director’s Car

Jackson Stewart:

“I think going into today’s stage everyone expected that it would be sprinter’s stage. With 20 kilometres to go, we started to realised that perhaps the breakaway had a chance to make it and then with 10 kilometers to go it really looked like they could win."

"I think for Team Lotto-Jumbo, it was a good thing that the break was able to go all the way as they were able to keep the GC lead. For us it didn’t change anything really and we are still in a good position as we look ahead to the rest of the race.”
