The news roundup of the day includes the day's results in races like the Tour de Hongrie, the Tour du Limousin, the Colorado Classic men's and women's races and Nacer Bouhanni's participation at the Vuelta a España.

Matteo Moschetti takes revenge at Tour de Hongrie

Polartec-Kometa's Matteo Moschetti was the fastest man at the finish line in the Tour of Hongrie. The rider crossed the line ahead of Attilio Viviani (Sangemini-MG.Kvis) and Manuel Belletti (Androni Giocattoli).

The escape of the 190-kilometre stage was formed by three men and was over at 23 kilometres from the finish. Some riders tried to break away in the last kilometres, but the peloton arrived compact to the end, where the three Italians fought for the victory. Belletti kept the leader's jersey at the end of the day.

Luca Wackermann wins second stage of Tour du Limousin

Bardiani CSF's Luca Wackermann has taken a solo victory at the second stage of the French race. Winner of the first stage, Anthony Roux (Groupama-FDJ) has kept the lead of the General Classification.

Wackermann made a move with 15 kilometres to go, as the peloton was fragmented due to the last climb, and soon got a considerable gap with the rest. The Italian crossed the finish line on his own, seven seconds before Marco Canola (Nippo-Vini Fantini) and Elie Gesbert (Fortuneo-Samsic).

Gage Hecht and Rebecca Wiasak celebrate at first stage of Colorado Classic

Aevolo's Gage Hecht and Fearless Femme's Rebecca Wiasak have won the first stage of the Colorado Classic.

The 20-year-old American rider was part of the breakaway and launched an attack with around 12 kilometres to go. The former national champion of cyclo-cross could hold his advantage to the finish line, where he celebrated on his own while UnitedHealthcare's Travis McCabe was the fastest man of the peloton, crossing the line just ahead of Holowesko-Citadel's Joe Lewis.

In the women's race, the Australian of Fearless Femme attacked at the last metres of the stage, crossing the finish line just ahead of Lex Albrecht and Kendall Ryan of TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank.

Nacer Bouhanni to start at the Vuelta a España

The French rider of Cofidis is set to start at the last Grand Tour of the season after having a disappointing first part of the season that left him out of the Tour de France.

The last time Bouhanni started at the Vuelta was in 2015. "A gastroenteritis prevented Nacer from finishing the Tour of Poland. But he’s recovering well and should be in top shape for the start of La Vuelta, with stages that should suit him in the first week," said Cofidis' sports director Christian Guiberteau.
