Greipel continues sprint dominance in Luxembourg

Free Pass

After a short break following the Giro d’Italia, André Greipel (Lotto Soudal) returned to his winning ways immediately as he continued his love affair with the Tour de Luxembourg by winning the first stage for the third year in a row.

After his team had controlled most of the stage, he held off Adam Blythe (Tinkoff) and Amaury Capiot (Topsport Vlaanderen) in the bunch kick. Jempy Drucker (BMC) had to settle for sixth but it was enough to retain the lead.
