Eneco: Rain wreaks havoc in final stage

The Eneco Tour ended Sunday with the hardest stage of the seven-day race, and when the rain started in the last 65 kilometers of the 197.8-kilometer stage, the race turned upside-down. The wet roads and slick cobbled climbs split the peloton, with many riders sliding out in slippery corners. With 41 kilometers to go, a leading group of nine riders shaped that included Boy Van Poppel, and Trek-Segafredo appeared to be in a good position.
