The first stage of Ruta del Sol came down to a sprint finish, with Daniele Bennati (Tinkoff) crossing the line to take the stage and the leader’s jersey.

A four rider breakaway was caught in the last five kilometers of the stage, having stayed away for most of the race.

Philippe Gilbert was BMC Racing Team's best-placed rider, crossing the line in 12th place.

“It was an easy stage as the break was up there and had a good gap but the bunch was organized and we came back very late. The sprint was a bit crazy with a lot of corners. I tried to get in front but I was a bit too far behind,” Gilbert said.

Stage 2 tomorrow is 186.3km from Palomares del Río to Córdoba, including a decent climb in the last 30 kilometers.
