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.

Colin McRae came close by finishing second in 1992, but in a brilliant performance Evans led this year’s event from start to finish to leave Sweden tied at the top of the drivers’ standings with Thierry Neuville.
