Michael Van Staeyen (Topsport Vlaanderen-Baloise) is the first leader of Etoile de Bessèges stage race in the south of France after winning the sprint finish that decided stage one from Bellegarde to Beaucaire.

The 24 year-old beat fellow Belgian Frédérique Robert (Lotto-Belisol) and France's Justin Jules (La Pomme Marseille), who won Sunday's GP La Marseillaise.

The race was an aggressive 150km ride around the country roads east of Nîmes. Pierre Rolland (Team Europcar), Niels Wytinck (An Post-Chainreaction), Koen Barbe (Crelan-Euphony), Arthur Vanoverberghe (Topsport Vlaanderen-Baloise) and Jason Bakke (La Pomme Marseille) formed the break of the day after 30km of fast racing. They opened a two-minute gap but were gradually pulled back and caught with 18km to go.

Team Europecar took over in the finale to set up young neo-pro sprinter Bryan Coquard, with even team captain Thomas Voeckler doing his share of the work. Coquard is fast but was slightly blocked in the sprint and finished sixth. Luke Keough was the best rider from the UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team, finishing 17th in the sprint.

The Etoile de Bessèges continues on Thursday with the 157km second stage from Nîmes - Les Fumades.
