Galvez takes CI lead with 1st-stage sprint win

Eurosport | Galvez wins opening stage

Isaac Galvez of Illes Balears outkicked Erik Zabel for the stage win at Criterium International. Gerolsteiner's Robert Forster was third.

A long break by Frederic Finot, Denis Robin, and Igor Anton came to nothing, thanks to a hard chase by Liberty Seguros, riding to place Allan Davis in the final sprint.

Time bonuses put Galvez up by 4 seconds overall, but Jens Voigt, last year's winner, finished 8th, high in the field sprint, and is 10 seconds back.
