Eneco Tour 6 : Luciano Pagliarini wins

In the enco tour the riders took a rest day today because there was nothing really to do. Early in the stage there was an early escape with Beppu, Drancourt and Pronk but at 5km before the finish their story was over. In the sprint the Brazilian Luciano Pagliarini made an impressive jump and won before Mark Cavendish, Aitor Galdos became 24th. Tomorrow there will finally be an exciting stage, it will be a small Amstel Gold Race and Ruben Perez with his 20th place in the general rank and only 1.05 behind Nick Nuyens has a chance of doing something good.
