Bak has won GP de Fourmies when he bridged to a two-man leading group in the closing 10km of the 205km race. Bak made contact with the leading pair of Oscar Freire and Michael Mørkøv with approximately 8km to go.

The trio held onto a slim advantage with just five kilometres remaining and continued to work well together. The peloton had nearly made catch shortly after travelling under red-kite banner and so Bak attacked on his own, holding the bunch off to finish solo.

"The way I won is similar to my stage win in the Giro and I treasure this victory as highly. In France the race is shown live on television, this rates at the same level as Paris-Brussels yesterday." said Bak.
