Valentin Madouas (Groupama-FDJ) claimed a solo victory on the opening stage of the Tour de Luxembourg, taking the first leader's jersey of the five-day race.

The Frenchman played off a surge by teammate Kevin Geniets on the long, uphill drag to the finish line, and held off a chase by Sjoerd Bax (Alpecin-Deceuninck), with Dorion Godon (AG2R Citroën) third just ahead of the peloton, led to the line by Matteo Trentin (UAE Team Emirates).

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
