    It's been a chaotic start to cycling's Tour de France

    It's been a chaotic start to cycling's Tour de France


    UAE Team Emirates rider Alexander Kristoff has become the first yellow jersey wearer in this year's event, after the opening stage in Nice was partially neutralised when almost every rider in the peloton was involved in a crash at one point or another.

    The veteran sprinter emerged from the melee, and avoided another huge crash in the final three kilometres, to hold off the current world road race champion, Mads Pedersen, and claim the stage victory and overall race lead.
