Philippe Gilbert remains "unbeatable"

Philippe Gilbert (Omega Pharma-Lotto) has won this year’s Ster ZLM Toer (2.1), repeating his success in the race two years ago. His leader’s position in the race didn’t come into question during the fifth and final stage that ended in the Dutch town of Etten-Leur.

The 192 km final stage was won by the Australian. Leigh Howard (HTC-Highroad) who won in a mass sprint against the Argentine Lucas Sebastian Haedo and the American Tyler Farrar.

However, Gilbert’s performances in earlier stages were more than enough to give the Belgian victory.
