45th Tour of the Alps (2.Pro) Stage 1: Brixen >> Innsbruck (140.6km)
INEOS Grenadiers‘ Gianni Moscon took the “Tour of the Alps” opening stage, thanks to a late attack launched with 3 km to go. The Italian rider preceded on the finish line Idar Andersen (Uno-X Pro Cycling Team) who bridged the distance to Moscon but had no more to sprint, Alexandr Riabushenko (UAE-Team Emirates) taking 3rd in front of the chasing bunch.
Dan Martin told his Twitter followers >> All the new rules @UCI_cycling is creating with the excuse of making racing safer and they forget the basics. Parked cars all over the place in the final of a ‘sprint’ stage. They will claim they don’t have responsibility. One of scariest finishes I’ve done for a while.
