Giacomo Nizzolo took 3rd place in today’s sprint on stage one of Tour de La Provence, claiming another podium for NTT Pro Cycling.
It was a fast, stage today, spanning 149,5km from Châteaurenard to Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Our riders worked hard on the front to control the break of the day, and they were reeled in with under 10km of racing left. Nacer Bouhanni (Arkea-Samsic) won the sprint, ahead of Jakub Mareczko (CCC) and Nizzolo.
Today also marked Domenico Pozzovio’s return to the pro peloton.
He had not raced since August 2019 due to injury and it was exciting to see him wear the blue of NTT Pro Cycling, as he made his much-ancitipated return.
