Eneco Tour 2014: stage one – photo gallery

Andrea Guardini wins crash-laden first stage

The final pre-Vuelta a Espana tune-up, the Eneco Tour, is underway but any riders hoping to ease into the race were given a reminder of cycling’s unforgiving nature.

Driving rain, crosswinds and a run-in laden with roundabouts and road furniture contributed to a chaotic, crash-laden final sprint, which was eventually won by Andrea Guardini (Astana).

Guardini took the leader’s jersey as a solo attack by Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Shimano) fell agonisingly short of prevailing.
