First winner on the road in Europe: Samuel Dumoulin!


So the European road season finally kicked off in the south of France at GP La Marseillaise and it was pretty exciting, for late January. A few breakaways got away and were brought back. Near the end, a group of 15 got away...

Romain Bardet et Mikaël Chérel (AG2R) Bert De Waele (Landbouwkrediet) Pieter Serry (Topsport Vlaanderen)
Romain Hardy (Bretagne-Schuller) David Le Lay (Saur-Sojasun) Julien Guay (Roubaix-Lille Métropole)
Jérémie Galland (Saur-Sojasun) Rémy Di Grégorio (Cofidis) Thibaut Pinot (FDJ-BigMat) Romain Hardy (Bretagne-Schuller) Samuel Dumoulin (Cofidis) Arthur Vichot (FDJ-BigMat) Davide Malacarne (Europcar) and Lieuwe Westra (Vacansoleil)

Those 15 got away and stayed away until the finish with Sammy taking the win over Marco Marcato and Arthur Vichot
