Rabobank loses out in echelons at Paris-Nice

Monday's stage two of Paris-Nice proved to be treacherous for many riders, including those of Rabobank who came to the French stage race with an eye on the general classification. As echelons formed in the windy conditions on the road to Orleans, only one Rabobank rider made it into the decisive break towards the end of the stage that made the rest of the bunch lose more than two minutes overall: Dennis van Winden. But he, too, was unlucky and crashed, finally finishing in 168th place.
