Van Goolen takes Sud victory
Jurgen Van Goolen (Verandas Willems Accent) took a solo victory at the Route du Sud ahead of Isle of Man youngster Peter Kennaugh.
Van Goolen was part of an early 12-man break that formed ahead of the Col de Menté and he held tough over the Port du Balès to gain enough of a lead to withstand the efforts of a chase group on the descent to the finish.
Van Goolen finished 1:36 ahead of Team Sky's Kennaugh who lead home a 14-man chase group including Vasil Kiryienka (Movistar) who moved into the overall lead.
Kiryienka leads Italian veteran Davide Rebellin by 43 seconds on GC going into the final stage, with Kennaugh a further two seconds back.
