Phinney keeps lead after first road race stage

American fifth in sprint won by John Degenkolb

Taylor Phinney (USA) kept the race leader’s yellow jersey at the Tour de l’Avenir but the talented American was disappointed to finish fifth on the stage after pulling his foot out of the pedal during the sprint, just three hundred metres from the finish.

The 144km stage from Vierzon - Saint-Amand-Montrond in central France was won by John Degenkolb (Germany) ahead of Michael Matthews (Australia), who finished third in Sunday’s prologue, and Michal Kwiatkowski (Poland).

Matthews is just seven seconds behind Phinney overall, with Alex Dowsett (Great Britain), still second at six seconds.

Tuesday’s 150.5km second stage is from Saint-Amand-Montrond to Cusset and includes five climbs in the final 50km of racing.
