Fernando Gaviria (Quickstep-Floors) sprinted to victory on stage 1 of the Tour de France securing the first yellow jersey of the race. World Champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) finished in 2nd place and Marcel Kittel (Katusha-Alpecin) was 3rd. A beautiful sunny day welcomed the start of the 105th edition of Le Tour de France, as the peloton left the Normandy region on a 201km journey, finishing in Fontenay-de-Conte. It was a day for the sprinters and a rare chance for a fast man to pull on the coveted yellow jersey. From the start, Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka and Quickstep-Floors took control of the race, setting.

Matej Mohoric (Bharain-Merida) won the opening stage of the Tour of Austria with a late solo attack. Giovanni Visconti made it a 1-2 for the Bahrain squad and Floris Gerts (Roompot) rounded out the stage podium. A 150km stage got the Tour of Austria underway today with a mostly flat route to start with, before a few undulations kept the finale interesting. The early break of the day was caught with around 25km to go and this brought our African Team into the action as we appeared at the head of the race. Johann van Zyl and Ben King were really attentive over the undulations,.
