Croatia: Nizzolo nets 5th in comeback race

A long, cold and wet 227-kilometer sprint stage greeted the riders for the opening day at the Tour of Croatia, a pitiless return to competition for Giacomo Nizzolo, who started his first race of 2017. The expected sprint played out, but Nizzolo, far from his top form, couldn't prosper from the good leadout and excellent positioning and faded to fifth place in the last meters. It was not unexpected after his lengthy layoff to a nagging injury and with less than a month of hard training in his legs.

Alberto Contador pulled everything he had out of his hat – even a bike change – but could not top Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) from winning the Vuelta al Pais Vasco Saturday, as he settled for second place.

Scheldeprijs: Van Poppel 12th, Thuens 14th

It's a mid-week classic tucked between the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix and without any of the chief difficulties of the two Monuments, always ends in a bunched finish. The oldest of the Flanders Classics, it is a sprinter's delight, and this year was no different: Marcel Kittel (Quick-Step Floors) notched his fifth win while Trek-Segafredo suffered from one the ills of mass sprints that left leadout whiz Boy van Poppel without his cargo – Edward Theuns – in the last kilometer. Van Poppel mustered the best finish he could, finishing in 12th place.
