Stage Results[edit]

Stage 1, April 21, Tybee Island - Savannah, 115.6 km[edit]

The first stage of the Tour was a short and flat stage suited for sprinters, starting in Tybee Island and finishing in Savannah. A group of six riders broke clear of the main field and established a lead of over one minute, before being caught in the final 10 miles (16 km). The stage was won in a bunch sprint by Ivan Dominguez of Toyota United, ahead of Nicholas Sanderson (Jelly Belly) and Robert Förster (Gerolsteiner). Dominguez's win meant that he assumed the lead in the overall classification.[1]
