Wout Poels wins queen stage in Tour of Luxembourg!


The 24 year old rider of Vacansoleil-DCM went in a breakaway with three riders of Team Radioshack-Nissan in the finale of the 200 kilometres stage. After Klöden was dropped, Poels had to sprint against Fugelsang and Frank Schleck. 

Fugelsang who finished second after Poels took the lead in the general classification with two seconds on Wout Poels. 


Although finishing fifth in the final stage, Poels could not make up the two second gap with Fugelsang who won the Tour of Luxembourg. Poels is however happy with his performance working towards the Tour the France and in preparation will start in the Tour of Switzerland this month.
