The first day of racing is over and in a day dominated by the weather, we have our leaders. Rene Wildhaber goes into the night with a comfortable lead, and Damien Oton and Francoise Bailly Maitre will be chasing in 2nd and 3rd. In the women’s category, it looked like Tracy Moseley would dominate after winning Stage One, but at the end of the day she had to settle for third, with Cecile Ravanel in 2nd and Anne Caroline Chausson taking the lead into day 2.
