Cimolai wins first road stage at Tour of Japan

by CyclingTips

Davide Cimolai (Lampre – Merida) won the first road stage of the Tour of Japan, in a field sprint ahead of Nippo – Vini Fantini teammates Pier De Negri and Kazushige Kuboki.

Kuboki, the Japanese champion, was visibly upset at losing out on the chance at winning at home.

The main breakaway of five riders included Australian Wesley Sulzberger (KINAN) and a rider from UnitedHealthCare.

Despite losing the sprint, De Negri takes over the leader’s jersey, having turned in a better time in the opening prologue time trial than Cimolai and the time bonuses available for the top three.
