ANTWERP, Belgium — Favorite Marcel Kittel of Germany edged Wenatchee cyclist Tyler Farrar in a mass sprint, winning the 125-mile Scheldt Prize through the flats of northern Belgium on Wednesday.

A sudden shower on the final stretches of cobblestones and asphalt resulted in a crash-marred finish.

"It was crazy," said Farrar, 28. "I was scared for the last five kilometers."

Farrar does not have an individual victory this year, but already has 14 top-10 finishes.


Seattle Thunderbirds right wing Branden Troock was named to Team Canada for the Under-18 World Championships, April 12-22 in the Czech Republic. Troock, from Edmonton, Alberta, had 14 goals and 12 assists in his first Western Hockey League season with the T-birds.
