Drucker tops prologue

Poos a fraction behind in Differdange sweep

Continental Team Differdange riders dominated the opening prologue at Flèche du Sud, with Jean-Pierre Drucker claiming the race lead. Drucker posted the same time as team-mate Christian Poos on the 4.5 kilometre time trial in the pair’s homeland of Luxembourg.

Dutch rider Stefan Cohnen (Continental Team Differdange) was just one second behind on the stage, which is likely to have little impact on the overall classification. The top 143 of the 149 riders to start the race finished within 57 seconds of Drucker’s time, with 627.8 kilometres of racing remaining.

The race continues tomorrow with a 158 kilometre stage from Kayl to Rumelange.
