KBC Driedaagse van De Panne-Koksijde

Or as I like to call it, "Three Days of De Panne". This is a good race for Disco, as Hincapie won it in 2004, and Stijn Devolder won in 2005. In today's first stage, Leif Hoste and Stijn Devolder from Disco got in an early break. Leif Hoste was able to stay away to the finish along with Bernhard Eisel and Gert Steegmans and win the sprint to the line. Hoste now has a minute or more lead over most of the peleton, including Hincapie, Boonen, Pozzato, etc.

Obviously Hincapie had teammates up the road, and Boonen had Pipo Pozzato in a chase group just behind the three leaders. Love this quote from the Disco site, "10 kms to the line and Unibet was trying once again to drive the peloton chase only to have riders like Hincapie and Boonen come to the front and then sit up blocking, much to their personal enjoyment. "
