Francesco Chicchi has won the first stage of the Coppi e Bartali in Riccione. The opening day of the Coppi e Bartali is an interesting one as it features two races in the same day – the 81km 1a crit, and the 16km 1b TTT which was also won by Chicchi and his Liquigas team. The two results only further Chicchi’s lead and grip on the first leaders jersey for the 5 day race which concludes Saturday in Sassuolo.
