Paris Nice Stage 5: One for an Italian

Today it was a new team and a new country that got to throw their arms wide at the finish line in Paris Nice. The Italian, Davide Cimolai (Lampre Merida), got the win ahead of a fading Bryan Coquard (Europcar) with Michael Matthews (Orica GreenEdge) managing third place solidifying his hold on the Green sprinter's jersey.  Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) just missed the podium.  All of these players will be back to contest the final sprint into Nice on the Avenue des Anglais along the edge of the Mediterranean Sea.
