Greipel takes the lead in Sachsen

Andre Greipel won the mass sprint of the opening stage of the Sachsen Tour by three bike lengths to take the leader's jersey. The German beat Ben Swift of the British National Team and Dennis Pohl of Team 3C-Gruppe to take his ninth win of the season. "This is definitely my best year so far." Greipel said. "It's always an extra motivation for me to be racing and winning in Germany, on home soil, too.

"The sprint itself wasn't too difficult, a little uphill and on a wide street in a good warm weather. The only problem was there was a very strong headwind so I had to go from a very long way out. But I still won by three bike lengths."

Much of the race was dominated by a 160 kilometer escape by Tobias Erler (3C-Gruppe), Ingmar Daßler (LKT Team Brandenburg) and Malaya van Ruitenbeek (Team Kuota-Senges). The three got away after the first ranked climb at kilometer 33 and were able to build up a lead of up to 11 minutes.

They were overtaken three kilometers before the finish line and the mass sprint was set up. Greipel started out the season by winning four stages and the overall title in the Tour Down Under and has also won stages in the Giro d'Italia and the Österreich Rundfahrt. Stage two runs a whopping 242 kilometers from Görlitz to Frohburg and is expected to end in another mass sprint.
