Provence (1): Dupont starts with a 7th place

The opening stage at the Tour de la Provence (13/02, 2.Pro) this Thursday was suited for sprinters. Four riders escaped at the start of the stage, but never gained a big advantage. The sprinters didn’t want to miss their only chance this week and catched the leaders with 3 kilometer to go at the Côte d’Azur. Nacer Bouhanni was the fastest and is the first leader in the four day race. Timothy Dupont finished 7th. The Tour de la Provence stays at the Côte d’Azur on day two, for a 175 kilometer stage between Aubagne and La Ciotat.
