Paris-Nice

Cees Bol (Team DSM) has sprinted to victory in the second stage of Paris-Nice, which is his first win of the season.

The Dutch rider was part of the group that stayed in front at the last kilometre of the second day of competition after a crash caused a split in the pack. He managed to cross the finish line ahead of Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) and Michael Matthews (BikeExchange).

"It's the best feeling there is," said Bol at the end of the stage. "I had a bit of a struggle at the start of the season and wasn’t too good until now but we kept believing and today I got superb help from my teammates. We smashed it. We went well through the last corner, and were close to being boxed in but Nils (Eekhoff) recognised the moment and kept the door open for me and from there I was in a good wheel.

"Trek did a good lead out but I started my sprint in the right moment and had enough power to make it to the line. It’s a good boost for the confidence after we didn’t do too well yesterday but today we showed what we’re capable of as a team. It gives us confidence for the next sprint stages but also for on other days where we’ve got chances with other guys in the team."
