BMC’s Danilo Wyss wins Beauce opener

BMC's Danilo Wyss won the first stage of the Tour de Beauce on Tuesday, taking the first leader's jersey of the Canadian stage race. Early in the 165km stage, the Swiss rider and Team Type 1's Darren Lill bridged to a ten-man breakaway. In the final five kilometers, the break came apart, and Wyss took the sprint from four others. Lill was second. It was a good day for BMC, whose Chad Beyer had initiated the break. Beyer ended up with the KOM jersey and the lead in the U23 competition. Wyss also took the lead in the points competition.

It was a good day for BMC, whose Chad Beyer had initiated the break. Beyer ended up with the KOM jersey and the lead in the U23 competition. Wyss also took the lead in the points competition.

“We went in to today’s stage without a designated leader and everyone made sure to mark good moves,” Beyer said.

Ryan Roth of Planet Energy was third. The race continues Wednesday with the 161km Thetford Mines circuit.
