Ryan Gibbons (NTT Pro Cycling) won the first-ever men's stage at the Virtual Tour de France on Saturday. The South African champion made use of a late power-up and the help of teammate Edvald Boasson Hagen to take a comprehensive win ahead of Pier-Andre Cote (Rally Cycling) and Nick Schultz (Mitchelton-Scott).

Dutch rider Mathieu van der Poel finished fourth in a race that mirrored the action from the earlier women's race. The NTT team was present in most of the moves that took place with Boasson Hagen a constant avatar at the front of the race.
