Mezgec and Maes complete the podium

Thor Hushovd (BMC) won the first stage of the Tour of Beijing and became the first race leader thanks to a perfectly-timed charge to the line in Huairou Studio City.

Michael Matthews (Orica-GreenEdge), Alessandro Petacchi (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) and Luka Mezgec (Argos-Shimano) hit the front in the final hundred metres but Hushovd found a gap on the right of the road and surged to victory. Mezgec held on to take second with Nikolas Maes (Omega Pharma- Quick Step) following Hushovd through the gap to take third.

Thanks to his victory, Hushovd pulled on the race leader's red jersey that was presented to him by new UCI President Brian Cookson.

“It's a good win. I'm a little surprised as I had a hard couple of weeks after the Worlds finding the motivation. I still did the training I had to do and so to win here couldn’t be better," Hushovd said.

"With 20km to go they [the break] still had two minutes and so we were scared. My BMC teammates pulled a lot and so it was up to me to do a good job and finish it off."

A five rider attack

The opening stage of the five-day Tour of Beijing covered a 190km route around the north-east of Beijing. Willem Wauters (Vacansoleil-DCM), Sander Cordeel (Lotto-Belisol), Davide Viganò (Lampre-Merida) and Ryota Nishizono (Champion System) jumped away when the flag dropped and opened a nine-minute lead. However, the long straight and flat roads helped the peloton chase the breakaway.

Cordeel tried a solo attack in the finale of the stage and stayed away until five kilometres to go but Marco Pinotti and Steve Cummings of BMC led the chase and reeled him in. Omega Pharma-QuickStep and Orica-GreenEdge took over but were unable to control the peloton.

Petacchi and Matthews hit out early and looked set to fight for the win but faded. Mezgec came up alongside them but then Hushovd accelerated down the right to pass all three and snatch victory.

It was Hushovd's ninth win of the season. He won the Tour du Haut Var in February but then had a difficult spring and was not part of the BMC team for the Tour de France. He bounced back by taking the Norwegian national title, two stages at the Tour of Poland and overall victory at home in the Arctic Race of Norway.

"I started quite good but then had some ups and downs. I started to feel good at the nationals and had a lot of wins, so I'm happy with my season," he said proudly.

Thanks to a ten–second time bonus, Hushovd leads Wauters, who gained bonus seconds in the long breakaway, by three seconds. Mezgec is third overall at four seconds.

"Now we'll try and keep the race lead tomorrow but then there are two hard stages," Hushovd warned.
