Christophe Moreau is having the season of a lifetime. Storming at the Dauphine and French National Champ??? All he needs now is a stage win on the 14th and he can retire fufilled. That is along way from where he was in 98.
Giovanni Visconti keeps the Italian champs jersey at Quickstep, nipping Rebellin at the line out of a group of 4. Who was happy? This guy!
Stijn Devolder beat Boonen to the line by 15 seconds in Belguim. Huge win for Stijn!
Perhaps the biggst triumph was Tadej Valjavec's win to become champion of Slovenia!
Veterans Benoit Joachim and Koos Moerenhout got the wins in Luxemborg and Holland
Magnus gets a win in Sweden! Hopefully a return to better days for the oft injured hardman.
There are a lot more champs to be named, but these are some of the big ones.
