Tour de France 2016 Stage 1: Cavendish wins and in Yellow

3375

Stage one of the 2016 Tour de France had winners and losers. Mark Cavendish was the winner, getting the better of Marcel Kittel in a crash marred finale to take his 27th stage win and first ever yellow jersey.

The (potential) loser of the day was one of the pre-race favorites – Alberto Contador who had a BIG crash with 81km remaining.

Alberto has a week to recover from any injuries he has if he can survive the uphill finish of stage 2.
