He thinks he will win when he is second and fall to the test: a double failure at the end of the Tour of Greece

The scene is extraordinary to say the least. While he thought he had won the stage and could celebrate his victory, Spanish cyclist Eduard Prades lost everything in a split second. In fact, the Caja Rural-Seguros RGA team rider was only second, far, away from New Zealander Aaron Jett, the single winner of 1 minute 46 seconds.

Even worse, by letting his joy finally explode, Edward Bradys was unbalanced, apparently due to his seat breaking, and fell off his bike. He ended up on the ground, supported by other runners who came after him. Even if he does not appear to be suffering from any injury, the Spaniard will likely remember that double foul on the finish line for a long time.

The Tour Greece made its big comeback today on the UCI calendar after a 10-year absence. The first stage, with a length of 190 kilometers, took place on the island of Crete and connected the city of Heraklion with Chania. Tomorrow, the contestants will cover the 165 km distance between Marusi and Itea.

So Aaron Jett is at the top of the rankings and will wear the leader’s blue shirt tomorrow. Overall, he beats Eduard Prades and Italy’s Filippo Baroncini, of Team Trek-Segafredo, third on the stage.
