Lapize Again!

A record number of starters came to the line in Chatou. The elites of the race dueled steadily until pre-race favorite Frans Faber (Lux) became tired and fell into a ditch. The lead group was down to four at the entrance of the velodrome. With six laps of the track to go, Cyrille Van Hauwaert set a strong pace. Around the final bend Lapize powered past Van Hauwaert for his second straight P-R victory.
