Marcel Kittel

German Marcel Kittel takes a convincing win at the end of stage 1 at the Tour de France in Harrogate. That earned the Giant-Shimano rider the first yellow jersey of this year’s race.

The Tour de France kicked off in the United Kingdom on Saturday with German strongman Marcel Kittel (Giant-Shimano) taking stage 1 along with the yellow jersey after grabbing a sprint win ahead of Peter Sagan (Cannondale) following a mad dash to the line in Harrogate. Meanwhile, home-country favorite Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) crashed heavily within site of the line and was taken to the hospital after the race for X-rays.
