Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Visma) continued his winning streak by taking victory on a chaotic stage 2 of Paris-Nice. The Dutchman beat Bahrain-Merida's Ivan Garcia Cortina and Philippe Gilbert (Deceuninck-QuickStep) after a frantic day of racing in which the peloton split several times due to crosswinds and crashes.
In the end, an eight-man break moved clear of the peloton inside the final kilometres, with Team Sky best represented through Luke Rowe, Egan Bernal and Michal Kwiatkowski. While a number of GC riders faltered in the conditions – and Rigoberto Uran (EF Education First) and Warren Barguil (Arkea-Samsic) both crashed – Groenewegen kept himself in contention before unleashing an unstoppable sprint to solidify his position as the race leader after two stages.
