Dylan Groenewegen wins second stage in a row at Paris-Nice

Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Visma) made it two sprint victories in a row at Paris-Nice 

The race to the sun headed today from Les Béviaires over 165km to Bellegarde and ended with another flat finish. In theory it was a day for the sprinters, but with crosswinds expected and overall cold and rainy weather conditions, everybody knew already in the morning that it would be a tough day in the saddle. 

Like yesterday, the race split into several groups, with constantly changing race situations and echelons.

On the final lap of the day, seven riders distanced themselves from the leading group to fight for the stage win.

Behind them the first two reduced fields regrouped to finish the stage.

Dylan Groenwegen defended his yellow jersey with another stage win.
