Tour de Luxembourg
Prologue: Luxembourg - Stage Details

ORICA-GreenEDGE made a promising start to the Tour de Luxembourg with a strong performance from Alex Edmondson in the opening 2.9kilometre prologue.

The 21-year-old track star excelled on the challenging, technical city centre race against the clock to finish in a respectable sixth place.

Sport director Matt Wilson was happy with the overall result which saw Jempy Drucker (BMC Racing Team) steal the victory in wet conditions.

"Caleb Ewan and Alex Edmondson had really strong rides," explained Wilson. "It's such a short race you have to start fast, you have to finish fast, so for these guys who were really being cautious on the corners they both finished really well."
