Greipel edged out Peter Sagan in the sprint finish with Cancellara taking third and the four-second time bonus that afforded him was enough to take the yellow jersey off Rohan Dennis.
But the big news of the day was Chris Froome and Alberto Contador putting almost a minute and a half into overall rivals Nairo Quintana and defending champion Vincenzo Nibali at the end of the 166km run from Utrecht to Zeeland.
