Colbrelli takes sprint win in stage 2 of Route d’Occitanie

Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain McLaren) won stage 2 of the Route d’Occitanie on Sunday after he beat Bryan Coquard (B&B Hotels-Vital Concept) and Niccolo Bonifazio (Total Direct Energie).

With a slight uphill finish in stage 2 of the French race, it came to a bunch sprint and it was Colbrelli who was the first to push his wheel across the line.

“It’s good to win in my first race back and it gives me and the team a lot of confidence before the big races that are ahead such as Milan-Sanremo,” said Colbrelli. “I had a bit of mechanical problem early on in the stage, but the mechanic managed to sort that out and then the hardest part were the conditions. Yesterday the heat was intense, today the wind was the issue and made it a very hard stage.”
