Romandie: Trek-Segafredo retains yellow in brutal wintery conditions

Miserable winter-like conditions plagued the peloton for stage two at the Tour de Romandie resulting in a frozen peloton zapped of impetus to catch the last remnants of the day's breakaway. While Stefan Küng (BMC) won a two-up battle for the stage honors, Fabio Felline arrived with the bunch 20 seconds later and sprinted to 6th place. After a race of cohesive teamwork in atrocious weather, Trek-Segafredo defended yellow for another day.

Romandie: Felline defends yellow in stage 1 summit finish

Fabio Felline sprinted across the line in thirteenth place in a rain-soaked summit finish at the Tour de Romandie and will continue to wear the yellow jersey into stage two tomorrow. Despite the long 14-kilometer climb and several attacks, it was a large group that contested the stage with 58 riders arriving at the line. Felline was positioned well for the final dash at one kilometer to go, but as the road tilted downward to the line a swarm of riders overtook him and the door shut.

Croatia: A race back to form for Nizzolo

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. Again. On a 27.7-kilometer time trial course better suited to power riders, Contador knew he had to make his difference in the opening six-kilometer climb, and he rolled off the start ramp on his Project One Émonda.

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.
