Guillaume Martin takes race lead with stage 2 victory at Tour de l’Ain



Guillaume Martin (Cofidis) won stage 2 of the Tour de l’Ain with a perfectly-timed late solo attack after the long descent to the finish in Lagnieu.

The French rider was part of a seven-rider group that formed over the top of the Col des Portes and then he surged away alone with 1.6km to go. Martin had time to sit and celebrate as Mattias Skjelmose (Trek-Segafredo) won the sprint for second place behind him. Rudy Molard (Groupama-FDJ) was third.
