Napolitano wins stage 2 at Tour de Wallonie

Acqua e Sapone Italian takes over leader's jersey from Bouhanni


Danilo Napolitano of Acqua & Sapone won the mass sprint in the second stage of the Tour de Wallonie. Davide Appollonio of Sky was second and Romain Feillu of Vacansoleil-DCM third.

Napolitano also took the overall lead on bonus seconds, replacing FDJ-Big Mat's Nacer Bouhanni, who finished ninth on the 205.5km from Binche to Mettet.

A two-rider break group lead for much of the stage. Mikhail Ignatiev (Katusha) and Luke Rowe (Sky) attacked the peloton five kilometers into the day and built up a gap of nearly six minutes. The duo were caught, however, with 27km to go.

In the finale, Vladimir Isaychev of Katusha tried to get away, but the peloton immediately hunted him down to set up the mass sprint finale.
