    Søren Kragh Andersen with a maximum force at the 3rd stage of Paris-Nice 2022

    Søren Kragh Andersen with a maximum force at the 3rd stage of Paris-Nice 2022A breakaway of three riders created the main interest for the stage of the day in Paris-Nice 2022, but in the final circuit final, while there was still around 25 kilometers to go, their adventure came to an end.

    Since the sprinters teams had been working for a big part of the day to come back on the leading trio, a sprint became unevitable and in the long straight line, slightly uphill, towards the finish line, Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) managed to make the difference and win this stage.

    Second stage of Paris-Nice: sprint victory from a reduced peloton for Fabio Jakobsen

    Second stage of Paris-Nice: sprint victory from a reduced peloton for Fabio JakobsenThe second stage of Paris-Nice 2022 ended in a sprint, but not without the wind taking its role to reduce the number of pretendants!

    In the end it was Fabio Jakobsen (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team) who took the victory, while Christophe Laporte finished almost immediately behind him, thus maintaining his leader position in the general classification. The French rider of the Dutch Jumbo-Visma team will thus again wear his yellow jersey tomorrow!

    The demonstration by Jumbo-Visma in the final part of the first stage of Paris-Nice: victory for Christophe LaporteA team time trial? No, that was not what was on the programme of the first Paris-Nice 2022 stage today. However, 3 riders of the Jumbo-Visma team arrived together in a breakaway on the finish line and the trio decided to leave the victory to Christophe Laporte!

    The summary of the first stage of Paris-Nice 2022: Mantes-la-Ville > Mantes-la-Ville

    Paris-Nice 2018: sunshine for the Spanish riders David De La Cruz and Marc Soler in the final stage

    Paris-Nice 2018: sunshine for the Spanish riders David De La Cruz and Marc Soler in the final stageThe sun was definitely missing from the final part of Paris-Nice 2018 in Nice (despite the nickname of the race, the Race to the sun), with this stage of 110 kilometers which took place under the rain. If there were any sunrays, those were for the two Spanish riders who managed to get some good results out of this stage, David De la Cruz (Sky) for the stage win in a duo sprint and Marc Soler (Movistar) who wins the race thanks to the delay of the yellow jersey and the bonus seconds!

    The summary of the 8th and final stage of Paris-Nice 2018: Nice > Nice

    In this last stage, we had to wait until the climb of the Côte de Levens and the twentieth kilometer to see the first attacks, but this first breakaway didn't really work out. Once the bunch got back together, it fell apart in two parts, with a group of 24 riders ahead.

    Paris-Nice 2018: Simon Yates solo and with a double win in the 7th stage!

    Paris-Nice 2018: Simon Yates solo and with a double win in the 7th stage!The forelast stage of Paris-Nice 2018, who partly took place in the rain, was a difficult stage with several climbs. Simon Yates is the one who managed to be the last one to get away, in the final climb towards the mountain top finish and that's how the English rider not only won the stage but also took the jersey of the general classification!

    The summary of the 7th stage of Paris-Nice 2018: Nice > Valdeblore La Colmiane

    Apparently the Race to the sun, the nickname of Paris-Nice, doesn't really respect its nickname this year. Indeed, the forelast stage of Paris-Nice 2018 started in Nice under the pouring rain today!

    No breakaway attempts before the first climb of the day, the Côte de Gattières, but in this climb we saw sever ...

    Paris-Nice 2018: Rudy Molard solo at the end of the 6th stage!

    Paris-Nice 2018: Rudy Molard solo at the end of the 6th stage!After the time trial in Saint-Etienne won by Wout Poels (Team Sky) and the 5th stage of Paris-Nice 2018 won in a solo victory by Jérôme Cousin (Direct Energie), it was again a solo victory which concluded the 6th stage in Vence today. Indeed, Rudy Molard (Groupama-FDJ) went off alone just before the last kilometer and won the stage in this way!

    The summary of the 6th stage of Paris-Nice 2018: Sisteron > Vence

    At the start in Sisteron and despite several attempts to break away, we had to wait for about twenty kilometers before we saw a group get away. Rather quickly this group was joined by a second group and thus formed a big breakaway of no less than 13 riders: Lars Bak (Lotto Soudal), Amaël Moinard (Fortuneo-Samsic), Paul Martens (Lotto NL-Jumbo), Cyril Lemoine (Cofidis), Tom Scully (EF Education First-Drapac), ...

    Paris-Nice 2018: Jonathan Hivert goes on till the end with the breakaway and wins the 3rd stageA stage for breakaway riders today in Paris-Nice 2018 and that's what we've seen, starting with a first breakaway right from the first kilometer and than, once this leading trio falls apart after an accelleration by Fabien Grellier (Direct Energie) in this group, a second leading trio got set up after the first crossing of the finish line, in the final circuit. This leading trio went on until the finish and battled for the stage win, taken by Jonathan Hivert (Direct Energie)!

    The summary of the 3rd stage of Paris-Nice 2018: Bourges > Châtel-Guyon

    Just before 11.30AM the race started in Bourges and right from the first kilometer, 3 riders got away from the peloton, more precisely Jay Thomson (Dimension Data), Fabien Grellier (Direct Energie) and Przemyslaw Kasperkiewicz (Delko Marseille Provence KTM).

    Paris-Nice 2018: Dylan Groenewegen strong sprinter in the 2nd stage

    Paris-Nice 2018: Dylan Groenewegen strong sprinter in the 2nd stageThe second stage of Paris-Nice 2018 between Orsonville and Vierzon didn't present any climbs and it was thus almost sure that it would end in a bunch sprint. The breakaway took some time to get off and the speed in today's stage was quite low all the way long, but in the end we saw a classical set-up for such a stage: a breakaway of 6 riders which was quickly reduced to two, taken back at 4 kilometers from their goal, after which a bunch sprint was prepared. In that bunch sprint Dylan Groenewegen showed his strong legs by starting off his sprint quite early and winning the stage!

    The summary of the 2nd stage of Paris-Nice 2018: Orsonville > Vierzon

    The weather was a bit better than yesterday when the second stage of Paris-Nice 2018 set off from Orsonville in the Yvelines department early this afternoon ...
