De Gendt takes solo victory on the first stage of the Volta a Catalunya

Belgium’s Thomas De Gendt outlasted other riders in a breakaway group to take the opening stage of the Volta a Catalunya.

The Lotto-Soudal rider was amongst a group of six riders who broke away during the 164 kilometres route in and around Calella.

The breakaway group built up a lead of over four minutes at one stage but dropped off one by one on the climbs until only De Gendt was left to lead on his own.

Germany’s Maximilian Schachmann (Bora-hansgrohe) attacked and dropped the peloton with 5km to go to finish in second place, nearly three minutes behind De Gendt.
