Kroon wins Rund um den Henninger Turm

Karsten Kroon (Team CSC) won the 48th Rund um den Henninger Turm for the second time on Thursday. The 32-year-old Dutchman took the 179km race by outsprinting a nine-rider lead group that included Italian Davide Rebellin (Gerolsteiner) and Columbian Mauricio Ardila (Rabobank). "I had a strong spring, unfortunately without success," said Kroon, who first won here in 2004. "But today I felt very good. Andy Schleck has worked great for me."

Karsten Kroon (Team CSC) won the 48th Rund um den Henninger Turm for the second time on Thursday.

The 32-year-old Dutchman took the 179km race by outsprinting a nine-rider lead group that included Italian Davide Rebellin (Gerolsteiner) and Columbian Mauricio Ardila (Rabobank).

“I had a strong spring, unfortunately without success,” said Kroon, who first won here in 2004. “But today I felt very good. Andy Schleck has worked great for me.”

Rebellin’s teammate Fabian Wegmann was the top German finisher, crossing fourth. Christian Knees (Milram) attacked several times in the finale, but without success, and had to content himself with a fifith-place finish.
