stage 1 213KM
|17:31||Three jerseys for Kittel|
Marcel Kittel not only won the stage today, he takes the yellow jersey as leader of the general classification, as well as the green jersey and the white jersey.
|17:29||Still waiting for confirmation of results...|
We know the stage winner and the runner-up but it appears that the bus incident has damaged the timing transponders as there is an unprecented delay in the posting of results. We'll post the top five as soon as it's confirmed.
The top three is:
1. Marcel Kittel (GER) ARG
2. Alexander Kristoff (NOR) KAT
3. Danny van Poppel (NED) VCD
|17:20||Kittel ahead of Kristoff|
The confusion brought about by the incident with the bus is causing a delay in delivering results. The finish line had temporarily been shifted forward by 3km but then, at the last minute, it was altered and the sprint took place as intended: where the finish was planned.
Marcel Kittel came up the left side of the road to overhaul Alexander Kristoffof Katusha.
|17:17||The top five in stage one|
Marcel Kittel claimed his first stage win in the Tour de France at the end of a day when crashes and an incident with a team bus made the finish rather confusing.
(We are awaiting confirmation of the result and will post the top five as soon as we can.)
