Horner wins Tour of Romandie Stage 2

Originally uploaded by RideTrek.
What a great finish! I watched it live on cycling.tv. The peleton was shattered over a first category climb with a summit only 13km from the finish. A leading group of 14 riders made it over the summit, including Valverde, Salvodelli, Jaksche, Evans, etc. Tucked into this group was Chris Horner of Davitamon-Lotto. Horner and Evans played tactics perfectly, and Horner was able to attack in the last 5km and stay away. Horner beat the charging group to the line by four seconds, and took the yellow jersey with time bonuses. Salvodelli is in second, with another clibing stage tomorrow.
