Final KM: Stage 1 BinckBank Tour

It may well have a new name, but this old favourite stage race still produced the chaotic, close Eneco Tour sprints we’re used to.

BinckBank Tour Stage 1: Breda to Venray , 179.7 km

Peter Sagan gave BORA-hansgrohe the first stage win and the race lead. However, it took a photo and high powered magnifying lenses to separate him from Sunweb’s Phil Bauhaus after identical lunges for the finish line. Magnus Cort (ORICA-Scott) rounded out the podium.


One, one thousandth of a second…

Peter Sagan:  My body was second, my bike was faster.

BinckBank, it so FUN…

TT ahoy…

Excellent adherence to team orders from Movistar’s Alex Dowsett. He placed 174th out of 176on the start line, right next to Maceij Bodnar (BORA-hansgrohe) and Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb).
