Stage 1 of the Turul Romaniei saw Peter Schulting from #monkeytown Monkeytown Continental Team taking the win ahead of #illuminate Simon Pellaud and #teamtr Onur Balkan






In the early part of the hilly stage from Alba Iulia to Sibiu a 13 men breakaway went clear, including some of the big pre-race favourites like #teamro Serghey Tvetcov, #teammd Cristian Raileanu and #monkeytown Schulting, and as pretty much also all othere big teams found a man in front, some early attempts by the peloton to bring the gap down came to a standstill quite quickly.



Some ~10 minutes ahead of the bunch, #monkeytown Schulting then attacked his breakaway companions inside the final 10k and celebrated a beautiful solo victory on the cobbles streets of Sibiu's old town

He also picked up some bonus seconds at the intermediate sprints underway, thereby building up a healthy gap of 19 seconds in the fight for the #yellow yellow leader's jersey he'll have to defend in another challenging finale tomorrow.
