Wout van Aert takes a very impressive win in Tirreno-Adriatico!!

Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) immediately reinforced his ambitions in Tirreno-Adriatico. He won the opening stage of the Italian stage race after a bunch sprint. The Belgian all-rounder was faster than Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal) and is the first leader. It was only his second day of racing this season. Peter Sagan was 11th but didn’t contest the sprint in his first race after contracting Covid-19

Roglic immediately delivers a blow in the first mountain stage of Paris-Nice

Nobody can follow Roglic on the final climb!! The first three days of Paris-Nice were child’s play compared to the ride to Chiroubles, where 6 second category climbs had to separate the wheat from the chaff and then degenerate into a spectacular final on the final climb. Julien Bernard (TFS) turned out to be the breakaway with the longest breath. In the end, he was the ideal springboard for Luis Leon Sanchez (AST) and in the last 3 kilometers for Primoz Roglic. The other climbers had to straighten themselves quickly when they tried to keep up with the Slovenian. Because there was shadow boxing behind Roglic’s back and because Roglic himself did not stop for a second, it was still a big victory. The leader of Jumbo-Visma is already firmly in yellow. Sam Bennett survived ok saving his energy for the possible sprint stage to come tomorrow. He lost his green today but will wear it tomorrow instead of Roglic as second in the point GC
