Brutt wins in Limburg


He beat Simon Geschke (1t4i) and Daniel Schorn (NetApp) to the line at the end of the 198km route.

The Russian champion escaped inside the opening kilometre with Bert-Jan Lindeman and dropped the Vacansoleil-DCM rider only to be joined by Geschke, Schorn (NetApp), Pieter Serry (Topsport Vlaanderen) and Marc De Maar (UnitedHealthCare).

The five-man group stayed away from the peloton and Brutt timed his sprint to perfection with 600 metres to go.

"I'm very happy with this victory," said Brutt. "I felt in a good shape, I was in a breakaway from the beginning and I thought the peloton could reach us in the final circuit: but when I saw they didn't manage to, I tried to anticipate my sprint and luckily my rivals were surprised and they couldn't catch me.

"I'm very glad with this victory and my shape. I had to withdraw from Tirreno-Adriatico because of a flu."
