Dujardin wins Rwanda’s first sprint

The French Sandy Dujardin (Total Energies) has been the winner in the sprint of the first stage of the Tour of Rwanda which has been disputed through 148.3 km between Kigali and Rwamagana, in which his compatriot Alexandre Geniez retained the yellow jersey won in the prologue.

Dujardin, 24 years old, inaugurated his professional record thanks to a victory for speed that he signed with a time of 3h.28.25, ahead of his compatriot Axel Laurance (B&B Hotels) and Colombian Jhonatan Restrepo (Drone Hopper Androni). The Spaniard Jesús Ezquerra (Burgos BH) entered the peloton in 12th place. In the general classification Geniez remained in front, the winner of the prologue that inaugurated the test last Sunday. He leads Restrepo by 5 seconds and Dujardin by 7.

It was a day for the sprint and the forecast was fulfilled despite the fact that they tried to surprise with a breakaway the British Leo Hayter and the Belgian Abram Stockman, both caught near the finish line, where the preparation of the arrival marked the nerves in the peloton. This Tuesday the second stage will take the peloton from Kigali to Rubavu, through 155 km, an undulating route that could give game to the adventurers.
