Stage 1 of the Tour of Chongming Island was exactly as flat as I imagined it to be.


It also played out pretty much as expected: Peloton kept together until first intermediate sprint (won by #wiggle Wild ahead of #mts #champbe D'hoore & #ale Hosking), break (11-12 riders) let go up the road, break brought back with 10 km to go. Two riders tried to escape in the final, but didn't really get anywhere either.
Then there were two mass crashes in the final 3 km: The first took out the Alé Cipollini & #tibco Tibco-SVB sprint trains (Hosking & Kendall Ryan), the second, on the finishing straight, spelled the end of stage victory hopes for Mitchelton Scott & Wiggle High5. #cylance Cylance got through relatively unscathed and took a 1-4 with Giorgia Bronzini and Sheyla Gutiérrez; #doltcini Kelly Druyts & #valcar Silvia Persico finished second and third.
