Mercury-Viatel sprinter Gordon Fraser took 182 kilometre Stage 1 of the 2001 Tour de Langkawi ahead of a field battered and bruised from a dozen crashes. Fraser himself was dripping blood from a gashed knee sustained in an early. Second place went Fraser's team-mate Jans Koerts, while Enrico Degano of Ceramiche Panaria took third place.

The stage started quietly with the first section taking the peloton north into a head wind. The wind served to keep the race speed low. At the first of the hot spot sprints at Kangar 44.1 into the race Koerts won ahead of Paolo Bettini of Mapei-Quickstep and Graeme Miller of the Telekom AllStars. Shortly after the sprint the course turned south and assisted by a tailwind the pace increased.

Koerts won the second hot spot sprint at 75.2 kilometres, this time beating Alexandre Usov of Phonak and Saulius Ruskys of Gerolsteiner.

The first of three major crashes happened at 102 kilometres. 40 riders were brought down including eventual stage winner Fraser who said, "for most of the guys it's the first race of the season. Many of them aren't paying attention".

The second crash at 131 kilometres proved the most serious. According to reports a cow, perhaps several, wandering onto the road in front of the 170 strong peloton, forced riders to take evasive action. Unfortunately, Chinese rider Yajun Ma was unable to stop and finished up in a deep ditch. Unconscious he was taken to hospital. It is not sure whether he hit the cow, but there are reports that his brakes failed. According to South African Kosie Lousber, "he shot by me doing 70kms and didn't stop. He crashed into the Credit Agricole rider and somersaulted over the handlebars into the ditch". Loubser braked so hard he stripped the rubber on his tyre down to the canvas.

Ma is reported to be in a stable condition in Sungai Petani hospital suffering a broken jaw and several smashed teeth. The Credit Agricole, Pierrick Fedrigo, sustained a broken wrist and has also abandoned the race.

A third crash with 22 kilometres brought down a dozen riders but all remounted and continued. A series of minor incidents involving single riders occurred right up to the final kilometers.

Fraser completed the 182 kilometres in 4:49.49. It is Fraser's first win in the Tour de Langkawi. In 2000 he managed win the points competition but didn't win a stage. Koerts leads the race overall thanks to time bonuses gained by his wins in two out of the day's three hot-spot sprints. He will start stage 2, from Gerik to Kota Bharu wearing the race leader's yellow jersey. Koerts also leads on points but the green points leaders jersey will be worn by second place Bettini.

Mercury-Viatel leads the team classification, ahead of Mapei-QuickStep and Team Gerolsteiner. Mercury has made it clear that it has no intention of letting Mapei have an easy ride to the finish in Kuala Lumpur.
