Paris Nice Stage 1 Demonstrative

Julian Alaphilippe (Quickstep) certainly had the jump on all of the leading group all except for his country man Arnaud Demare (FDJ)   The duo came into the finishing straight with Demare on the front and Alaphilippe in the perfect position to take out the sprint (and to pull on the first Yellow Jersey of the 75th running of Paris Nice)  While Alaphilippe did get the first jump on Demare the FDJ sprinter was able to come around and take the first stage of the race   And to claim the Yellow Jersey of race leader   He was quite demonstrative in his victory salute celebrating being the last sprinter standing on the day

I apologize for the lack of punctuation but the gremlins are still denying me periods commas semi-colons and question marks  Perhaps I will devise a work around before the race reaches the Mediterranean Sea
