Tom Dumoulin has won the time trial in Breda. The Dutch national time trial champion beat Fabian Cancellara by two seconds. Lars Boom is the new leader overall.
At 1.50pm Evan Huffman was the first rider to start the time trial. The first real performance was put in by Stephen Cummings. The Britis rider from team BMC needed 11:12 for the time trial course.

It took a while before someone managed to bettter the time by Cummings, not even former world champion David Millar managed. Jesse Sergent did, the American was two seconds faster than Cummings.

Sergent's performance did not last long either as Fabian Cancellara capped the 11 minutes. It looked like his effort would suffice for claiming stage victory as everyone failed to better the time by the Swiss. Geraint Thomas needed eight seconds more, but his 11:05 landed him a second place at that time.

However, Dutch time trial champion Tom Dumoulin bettered Cancellara by two seconds. His 10:55 was the new best performance and it turned out no single rider was able to do better.

Dumoulin, who had lost time in yesterday' stage into Vlijmen, closes in on the overall leader. Lars Boom takes on the overall ranking from Stybar and leads both Manuel Quinziato and Dumoulin by four seconds.
