Cycling: After the Dutchman Danny van Poppel (Trek) secured the prologue victory in the rain yesterday, André Greipel (Lotto-Belisol) gave it a better one on the first stage. In a gripping sprint final after 172,6 kilometers in Hesperange, he clearly prevailed in front of the Dane Michael Morkov (Tinkoff-Saxo) and the previous day's winner. As a result, Van Poppel retained the overall lead.
