Poitou Charentes
Stage 2: Royan - Miss - Stage Details


ORICA-GreenEDGE controlled the second stage of Tour du Poitou Charentes from start to finish to deliver Aidis Kruopis to back-to-back victories in France. After two stages, Kruopis extended his overall race lead to eight seconds ahead of tomorrow’s double day.

“I was the third wheel out of the last corner at 300 meters,” said Kruopis. “We slowed for a moment because it was a slight uphill run to the line. I was waiting for the other guys to make their move. Adrien Petit (Cofidis) kicked first, and we started sprinting. I took the same line as [Yahueni] Hutarovich (FDJ-BigMat), and I managed to pass him before the line to win.”
