Tour of Slovenia: Keukeleire wins opening stage from reduced bunch


Jens Keukeleire (Orica-GreenEdge) took victory on the opening stage of the Tour of Slovenia on Thursday, winning from a reduced bunch in Koper.

After the day’s breakaway had been caught, a full bunch sprint appeared likely but the peloton split on the finishing circuit, which included a couple of short climbs. Keukeleire sprinted for the line and narrowly got the better of Diego Ulissi (Lampre-Merida) and Scott Thwaites (Bora-Argon 18), while there was a small gap to the remaining members of the reduced bunch.
