German Heinrich Haussler rocketed to a win Monday at the end of the 195.5km stage two of Paris-Nice. The Cervélo TestTeam rider fired down the right-hand side of the road in La Chapelle-Saint-Ursinwith 200 metres remaining, and he gapped sprinters Mark Renshaw (Columbia-Highroad) and Mirco Lorenzetto (Lampre-NGC), who finished second and third. Alberto Contador had a close call in the final two kilometres due to a crash immediately in front of him. The 2007 Tour de France winner of Astana put his foot down and edged past the fallen riders. He did not lose any time in the classification due to a three-kilometre crash rule and maintains his overall lead.
