Tour of Britain 1: Kittel (and Colbrelli)

Embedded image permalink
A break-away: Handley, Colbrelli, McNally and Mould.
A sprint. That's all.
Well... I watched La Vuelta!

A crash: Stannard has withdrawn with a fractured scaphoid.

Marcel Kittel:
"The team were strong today, controlling the race then we had to come really late for the lead-out. We found a way through on the right and this worked well.
It’s good to win the first stage. It’s really nice to see the reaction of the spectators here – a lot of people came out to the race today.
It’s a long way until London but it is nice to be the leader here and we will see what we can do tomorrow on stage two. I hope that as a team we will have more opportunities to challenge for stage victories here."
