Race Writeup

Giorgia Bronzini (Wiggle Honda) outsprinted Valentina Scandolara (McCipollini Giordana) and Emma Johansson (Orica-AIS) to win stage 1  Johansson remains in the leaders jersey

Conditions were warm for the first stage of the 2013 Route de France 85 riders rolled out for the 1219km stage  

There were minimal attacks during the first hour of racing There were crosswinds during the early part, although the wind direction provoked a bit of anxiety in the bunch, the peloton remained together Approaching the first of four circuit laps at the conclusion of the stage, an uncategorised hill set the scene for the decisive action The peloton arrived at the climb with 23km to go It was a  3km climb and preceded a 3-4km descent that led to the circuit laps

Defending Route de France champion Evelyn Stevens (USA) attacked on the hill Johansson followed Stevens, and the pair created a massive fight behind Riders scrambled to respond, and in the chaos that followed, the peloton shattered Two distinct groups came together on the descent As soon as we hit the circuit, a leading group of 37 had formed  It was a fast last 20km and the leading group worked hard to set up their sprinters that remained Bronzini had two team mates Lauren Kitchen and Linda Villumsen for company to help her to the line first Heading into stage two Johansson still holds a 1 second  over Linda Villumsen (Wiggle Honda) and 2 seconds on Amy Pieters (Argos-Shimano)
