Cycling.  In the lap of the future: Dutchman Keper van Uden takes second in the sprint

Dutchman Casper van Uden won Saturday’s sprint at the end of the second stage of the Tour de l’Avenir after a 153km battle between Bennett (Vendee) and Sivray (Vienne). Norwegian Soren Warenskjold, who outwitted the sprinters on Friday to win the first stage, retained the yellow jersey with a second lead.

“It’s a team win”

This new flat stage was animated by a long breakaway of three riders – Darren Rafferty (Ireland), Felix Stähli (Switzerland) and Carson Miles (Canada) – and a last ditch effort by Italian Lorenzo Milesi. But at the end of the course the peloton, led by the Dutch riders, gradually swallowed everyone up to ensure a sprint finish.
