Marco Marcato of Team Vacansoleil-DCM wins Paris-Tours!
The Italian rider was the strongest of the three man leading group. After a second place last year this time it had to be right for Marcato.
At 20 kilometres before the finish Marcato joined a group of 10 and he attacked on one of the last climbs where only Terpstra and De Vreese could follow the Italian. In a sprint with three Marcato crossed the line first.
"By far this is the most beautiful victory of my carreer!" Marcato said after the finish. "The team had confidence in me and did great work for which I'm very grateful. It's nice to go into the winter like this!"
