Paris-Tours : Lammertink 9th

Paris-Tours : Lammertink 9th

The semi classic Paris-Tours (1.Pro, 11/10) started early on Sunday morning. The peloton reunited at 9h30 in front of the Cathedral of Chartres for the start of the classic of the falling leaves. Loic Vliegen didn't start because of stomach problems.   A breakaway of six riders opened the race towards the chemins de vigne along the banks of the Loire. The race was animated by crosswinds after the feeding zone in Vendôme, before the race exploded with 40 kilometer to go under the impulse of Cosnefroy and Pedersen. The duo broke away on the chemins de vigne, while Aimé De Gendt crashed and lost time. Pedersen won, with Lammertink finishing 9th.
