Vernon win bunch sprint in Trnava and retains yellow jersey, Štoček takes climbers jersey

Vernon win bunch sprint in Trnava and retains yellow jersey, Štoček takes climbers jersey

Ethan Vernon won first stage of 66th edition of Tour of Slovakia. It's his second win in as many days. Slovak rider Matúš Štoček makes home nation proud after a brave ride in a breakaway, taking mountains jersey in the process. 

 

First stage of this year's race started in town of Samorin and after 142 kilometres finished in historical city of Trnava. Course was almost completely flat, with just one climb to Červený Kameň offering an opportunity to take the first climbing points. Naturally, bunch sprint was expected, and biggest favourite was overall leader of the race, Ethan Vernon from Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl. 

 

Right from the start the battle for the day's breakway started, with Zdeněk Štybar the most notable rider to try to go away. However, he didn't succeed, and breakaway was made up of Diego Sevilla (EOLO - Kometa), Jasper Haest (VolkerWessels), Marcin Budzinski (HRE Mazowsze), Nik Cemažar (Adria Mobil), Bryan Olivo (Friuli ASD) and Matúš Štoček (ATT Investments). 

 

Three intermediate sprints along the way were gradually won by Haest, Olivo and Štoček, with the last one taking also the most important climber's sprint to Červený Kameň. Therefore, a Slovak rider made sure he will appear at the podium after the stage, where he will be given climber's jersey. 

 

The last surviving rider from the break was Haest, but he was caught within last ten kilometres, as well as late attacker Michael Belleri (Biesse - Carrera). The finished was strongly in hands of team Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl. 

 

The Belgian team prepared an ideal position for their sprinter Ethan Vernon, and the young Briton didn't hesitate, although Gleb Syritsa (Astana) came close at the end. Giovanni Lonardi (EOLO - Kometa) came home third. 

 

22-year-old Vernon extended his lead in general classification on his college Josef Černý to 17 seconds. He also holds the green and white jerseys. Best Slovak rider jersey remained in hands of Martin Svrček.
