WATCH: Van der Poel left surprised as Coquard takes Arctic Race win

Van der Poel got on the wheel of Nathan Haas (Katusha–Alpecin) during the final kilometre, which proved the wrong tactic as Coquard moved into fourth position.
The Dutchman, who claimed victory in Stage 1 on Thursday, was forced around the outside, sitting in the wind and not perfectly sheltered.
The manoeuvre cost him energy as Couqard powered on to cross the finish line first after a strong sprint.
When asked about how he managed to beat Van der Poel, Coquard said: "Mathieu is very, very strong. But I felt that if I got myself in a good position, it would be possible to win.

Coquard reflects on 'very tactical day' after claiming stage win

It was a very tactical day. The lead out was perfect. I'm very happy as we came for this. Yesterday, I messed up.
Van der Poel leads the general classification by nine seconds from Alexey Lutsenko (Astana), with Andrea Pasqualon (Wanty–Groupe Gobert) two seconds further back in third.
