Paris-Nice 2014 Results 2nd stage - Hofland outsprints Degenkolb

Moreno Hofland Stage winner Paris-Nice The 2nd stage of the 2014 Paris-Nice traveled from Rambouillet to Saint-Georges-Sur-Baulche. As expected it came down to a bunch sprint with the Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne runner up Moreno Hofland taking the victory. (Slideshow route/profile)

Saramotins and Delaplace led for most of today’s stage but a sprint was always the likely outcome with the young Dutchman Moreno Hofland outsprinting John Degenkolb in a crash ridden finale. The Belkin rider held the big Germans wheel and kicked past with 200 metres left to race.

Yesterday’s stage winner Nacer Bouhanni finished third and retains the leaders jersey ahead of Degenkolb who must be frustrated with 2nd place in both stages and the GC.
