Stage 2 Excitement At Tour de France

Gert Steegmans of Belgium has won the second stage of the Tour de France in his home country.

His teammate, Tom Boonen, finished second and Italy's Filippo Pozzato was third in the 105-mile stage from Dunkirk, France to Ghent.

Switzerland's Fabian Cancellara kept the overall jersey despite going down in a crash that claimed many of the riders about a mile and a-quarter from the finish line.

Germany's Andreas Kloeden is second overall and Britain's David Millar is third.
