Lieuwe Westra (Vacansoleil-DCM) is the winner of the queen stage of Paris-Nice. Westra was first on the finish attacking out of a small group of favourites inside the last kilometre of the climb to the finish. Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) pushed out Bradley Wiggins (Sky) for second place, six seconds later. Westra came into Paris-Nice as an outside favourite for the overall win but after a blistering performance on the Mende stage, the Dutchman could yet be Bradley Wiggins's most dangerous rival.
Great Job Lieuwe!
