Feillu wins second Picardie stage
Romain Feillu (Vacansoleil) won the second stage of the Tour de Picardie after the trek from Villers Saint-Paul and Chateau-Thierry ended in a bunch sprint.
Feillu also moved up to second in the overall standings but Lithuanua's Egidijus Juodvalkis (Landbouwkrediet) remains in the overall lead by a solitary second.
It was Feillu's fifth win of the season – after his three stage wins during the Tour of the Mediterranean and his win in the Tour du Finistere.
Another group of French riders - Jean Lou Paiani, Johan Le Bon, Nicolas Bazin – had produced the main breakaway of the day but they were reeled in with 2km to go.
