Sergio Henao clings onto Paris-Nice after Contador attacks

Sergio Henao has won the 2017 Paris-Nice with only 2 spare seconds, after Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) attacked in a nail-biting finish.

Contador formed a group of 22 riders and took over the virtual race lead after opening up a 1 minute gap ahead of a very desperate Henao and team Sky, who tried to catch the front group and keep the overall victory - but to no avail.

An isolated Henao fought back on the final descent.
