Tim Merlier Claims his First Tour de France Stage Win

Tour de France (France) - Press Release: Belgium’s Tim Merlier won the first bunch sprint of the Tour de France just like at the Giro d’Italia two months ago. It was a 1-2 with his team-mate Jasper Philipsen while Nacer Bouhanni rounded out the podium in a crash-marred finale that has also reshuffled the overall classification. However, Mathieu van der Poel retained the Maillot Jaune after having paved the way for his victorious team-mates.

A 1-2 for Alpecin-Fenix:

Van der Poel powered to the finish line in the role of lead-out man for his two sprinters, Merlier and Philipsen who rode into the last kilometre in perfect position. Behind them, Caleb Ewan and Peter Sagan went down in the last slight bend with 200 metres to go. Merlier preceded Philipsen on the line for a 1-2 for the Belgian squad that retained the Maillot Jaune with Van der Poel for the second day.
