Niels Albert, Klaas Vantornout and Zdenek Stybar moved away from the rest and gained a good lead. Vantornout was to fall back into the clutches of the chasing Kevin Pauwels.
With two lap to go Stybar attacked and soon had a a useful advantage, but with the bell ringing Albert mounted a comeback and the race was settled on the final lap.
