Owain Doull says his first ever stage win in Europe bodes well for the upcoming classics season. The Team Ineos rider produced a perfect ride on the final day of the Tour de La Provence on Sunday to take the win. Doull placed himself in a four-man breakaway, which held on to a strong advantage near the end of Stage Four from Provence to Aix-en-Provence. With the peloton unable to reel in the breakaway in the final stages, Doull took his chance to win the sprint for the line.
