Team Garmin-Cervelo’s Johan van Summeren (Belgium), won the 2011 Paris-Roubaix classic for the first time after breaking away in the closing kilometers and holding on for an unexpected victory.

Two-time winner Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland and Team Leopard-Trek finished in second place, but was unable to catch Van Summeren despite a powerful late charge. Dutchman Maarten Tjallingii (Team Rabobank) was third.

Sunday afternoon on Versus, Paris Roubaix will air at 6 pm.

– 6th April, 2011 –
A powerful sprint saw HTC-Highroad’s Mark Cavendish rack up the third victory of his career in the Scheldeprijs Classic. Cavendish outgunned Russian Denis Galimzyanov and Yauheni Hutarovich of Belarus to claim the victory in the 200 kilometre one-day race in Belgium.
The HTC-Highroad rider has now taken three victories in the Scheldeprijs Classic, the first in 2007 and the second in 2008.
“The team did a perfect job, chasing down the break and then getting me to the front as they always do,” a delighted Cavendish said afterwards.
“[Team-mate] Leigh Howard worked very hard in the last few kilometers, then I came past him and went for the win.”
“I’m racing a lot this season, and I’ve had some bad luck, so it’s good I can get the wins in, too.”
“My next race will be Paris-Roubaix and then I’ll build up for the Tour de France, with the Tour of Italy and the Tour de Suisse before then as well.”
Following Cavendish’s latest win, HTC-Highroad men’s team have now taken 20 victories this season. It is Cavendish’s second victory of the 2011 season and the 64th road win of his professional career.
