Ben Swift wins first stage of Settimana Coppi e Bartali | Cycling



Team Sky’s Ben Swift leads the Settimana Coppi e Bartali after Thursday’s opening day.

Fresh from coming third in the Milan-San Remo on Sunday, the 26-year-old from Rotherham won a sprint finish at the end of the 99.5km opening stage.

It was Swift’s first victory since the Tour of Poland in July 2012 and gave the Briton the overall lead before Thursday afternoon’s team time-trial, which Team Sky won to consolidate Swift’s lead.

His team-mate Peter Kennaugh sits second overall, six seconds behind Swift. The race finishes on Sunday.
