The Briton, who won Milan-San Remo and has just returned from competing for his country at the world track championships in Poland, proved too strong for veteran Australian Robbie McEwen and Italy's Francesco Chicchi in the race for the line for his seventh victory of the season.

Italy's Filippo Pozzato, who won Tuesday's opening stage, retained his overall lead from Frederick Willems with just Thursday's split stage to come.

The peloton will first take in a 112km road stage, before the race ends with a 14km time-trial around La Panne.
