Tamouridis takes control

Greek rider wins time trial, assumes race lead

Ioannis Tamouridis (SP Tableware) powered to victory in stage 2a, a 20km time trial in the village of Archangelos. With the stage win Tamouridis also earned the general classification leader's light blue jersey, to the delight of the home crowd.

The 30-year-old Tamouridis, a multi-time national champion on the road and track and a medalist at the world track championships, competed the 20km race against the clock in 26:27. Runner-up was Andreas Graf (RC Arbo Wels), five seconds off the pace, while Stefan Schafer (LKT Team Brandeburg) finished third, 15 seconds back.

"From now on, the Tour starts for us," said Tamouridis. "We have the leader's jersey and must work hard as a team to keep it until the end of the race.

"Periklis Ilias has the mountains classification jersey so we'll try to keep it also, and we must do the same for the light blue jersey, which I have on my shoulders."

Tamouridis leads Graf by five seconds on general classification with Schafer in third, 11 seconds off the lead.

Stage 2b also takes place on Thursday as the peloton covers 118km from Prevesa to Mesologgi.
