Holland's Lars Boom prevailed amid the carnage which saw defending champion Chris Froome abandon the Tour de France to win a thrilling fifth stage over the cobbles of northern France on Wednesday.

The Ypres to Arenburg Porte du Hinaut stage commemorated 100 years since the start of World War One and featured many of the cobbles used in the Paris-Roubaix one-day race 'the Hell of the North'.
