    Richie Porte wins Paris-Nice 2015 by beating everyone else on the Col d'Eze

    Richie Porte wins Paris-Nice 2015 by beating everyone else on the Col d'EzeThe very last stage of Paris-Nice 2015 took place this afternoon under a bit of rain on the climb of the Col d'Eze as an individual time trial of 9.5 kilometers starting in Nice.

    Separated for 36 seconds from the yellow jersey Tony Gallopin (Lotto-Belisol) at the start, Richie Porte was despite this gap the big favourite to win the race, like in 2013 when he already won the Race to the sun.

    Paris-Nice: Thomas de Gendt sees the victory fly away to Davide Cimolai in Rasteau

    Paris-Nice: Thomas de Gendt sees the victory fly away to Davide Cimolai in RasteauA breakaway which almost lasted till the finish: that's what happened for Thomas de Gendt (Lotto-Soudal) who was in the lead all day long, together with 4 others, and who was the last to be taken back in the last few hundreds meters before the finish in Rasteau in the 5th stage of Paris-Nice 2015 today. That's how, like in 2006, the stage victory was decided in a bunch sprint and, almost out of the blue, Davide Cimolai (Lampre-Merida) won the sprint, beating Bryan Coquard (Team Europcar) on the finish line.

    The summary of the 5th stage of Paris-Nice 2015: Saint-Etienne > Rasteau

    At 11.17AM 154 riders got away for the 5th stage between Saint-Etienne and Rasteau. Ramon Sinkeldam (Giant-Shimano, sick) and Adam Hansen (Lotto-Soudal, who crashed yesterday) didn't come to the start of this stage with an identical race route as in 2006 between th ...

    Richie Porte attacks right on time in the climb of the Croix de Chaubouret!

    Richie Porte attacks right on time in the climb of the Croix de Chaubouret!A 3 riders strong breakaway, with Thomas de Gendt (Lotto-Soudal), Antoine Duchesne (Europcar) and Chris-Anker Sørensen (Tinkoff-Saxo), animated the 4th stage of Paris-Nice 2015, the queen stage with its 8 difficulties including the mountain top finish which had never been part of the race before, at the Croix de Chaubouret. When they were taken back in the final part of the stage, the favourites of the race showed up in front, with Team Sky seeming to be stronger than the others. Richie Porte and Geraint Thomas got away together and Richie Porte won the stage. Michal Kwiatkowski (Etixx-QuickStep) finished at the 3rd place at 8 seconds and thus took back the yellow jersey he lost in yesterday's stage, now being 1 second ahead of Porte!

    And Bling, Michael Matthews raffles all in the 3rd stage of Paris-Nice 2015

    And Bling, Michael Matthews raffles all in the 3rd stage of Paris-Nice 2015The 3rd stage of Paris-Nice 2015 again saw a breakaway with a rider of the Bretagne-Séché Environnement team, this time the local rider of this stage Florian Vachon, who got company from Philippe Gilbert (BMC Racing Team). They were joined later by Thomas Voeckler (Team Europcar), but the leading trio saw the peloton come back rather quickly in the last 30 kilometers. Little by little they were thus taken back by the peloton and a new leading group didn't manage to stay away for a long time. The Australian team Orica-GreenEDGE then controlled the race and Michael Matthews, nicknamed Bling, thus deservedly won this 3rd stage of the Race to the sun in the sprint.

    The gorilla strikes in Saint-Amand-Montrond: stage victory for André Greipel in Paris-Nice

    The gorilla strikes in Saint-Amand-Montrond: stage victory for André Greipel in Paris-NiceIn today's 2nd stage of Paris-Nice 2015 between the ZooParc de Beauval and Saint-Amand-Montrond we again saw a breakaway, this time with Arnaud Gérard (Bretagne-Séché Environnement), and a peloton which progressed at a relatively slow pace. The solo breakaway was taken back only in the final circuit and the stage ended - as expected - in a bunch sprint. At the start we saw numerous animals at the ZooParc, including gorillas, tonight it was the Gorilla - André Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) - who won the stage in the sprint!

    Alexander Kristoff continues his victories in the sprint at the 1st stage of Paris-Nice 2015

    Alexander Kristoff continues his victories in the sprint at the 1st stage of Paris-Nice 2015Today's stage started with a solo breakaway by Jonathan Hivert (Bretagne-Séché Environnement), which allowed him to take the polka dot jersey of the climbers classification on the first short climb at the very start of the stage. A new breakaway was then set up as a duo with Thomas Voeckler (Team Europcar) and Anthony Delaplace (Bretagne-Séché Environnement) and just before the finish this leading duo was taken back by the peloton and the stage thus ended, as expected, in a sprint.

    Alexander Kristoff (Team Katusha), who already won 4 times in the Tour of Oman and the Tour of Qatar early this season, again showed he's the strongest, beating Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) and Bryan Coquard (Europcar) easily on the finish line in Contres.
