Wout van Aert won the stage 1 of the Tour of Britian, outsprinting DSM’s Nils Eekhoff and Movistar’s Gonzalo Serrano at the end of a 112 mile ride from Penzance to Bodmin. Van Aert now lead the race by four seconds over Eekhoff with seven stages to go. Monday’s stage 2 features a hilly course that Van Aert can take advantage of again with a small rise in the final mile.
