Tour de France Stage 1

05. July 2014 - 3 years, 11 months and 11 days ago

July 05, Stage 1: Leeds - Harrogate  SRM sponsored teams powered into all Tour de France jerseys today with Marcel Kittel (Giant-Shimano) winning Stage 1 for the Leaders and Sprinters jersey, Jens Voigt (Trek Factory Racing) launching a solo breakaway for Polka-dots, and Peter Sagan (Cannondale Pro Cycling) claiming the best young rider spot in white. The opening stage from Leeds to Harrogate was far from flat as it twisted and rolled on narrow English roads through countryside filled with cheering fans and yellow sheep. Trek's famous German veteran, "Jens Voigt, bolted away at kilometer zero with two youthful, brave souls, and together the three formed the first breakaway of the 2014 Tour. Inevitably, all three would perish to the rolling terrain and a focused, edgy peloton unwilling to ease off the accelerator, but not before ‘Jensie’ dropped his two companions and soloed over the final two categorized climbs to grab the lead in the mountains competition."
