John Dagenkolb is out due to finishing outside the time cut.
You can't dream of a better start. I saw I was going to win.
- Alexander Kristoff wins Stage 1.
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose... today I lost all... all I worked and trained for in this special 2020. A crash took us, Caleb Ewan me and a lot of other riders on the wet ground and destroyed all my dreams... destroyed my Tour de France at day one... with open knees I could finish with a lot of pain the stage, alone, with a more than 18 minutes delay but obviously I am far out of the timelimit... of course it's frustrating as hell but that's the brutal reality of cycling... sad.
