A roundabout and pass along the left-hand side: it took the 30-year-old Nicolas Edet Saturday, his first pro victory. The Frenchman from Cofidis rode across the finish line first, the second stage of the French Round of the Ain (2.1), but lost after a decision of the jury is the ride to Spaniard Javier Moreno.

At the end of the tough second stage between Saint-Trivier-de Courtes and Arbent reed Edet away from a select lead group by a roundabout to the left to cut, even though there was a motorcycle of the organization to which the rest of the breakaway along the right around the roundabout sent. So hit Edet a little sore and he thought on the stripe for the first time a profkoers to have won.

But after criticism from the French rider Arthur Vichot (third finished), and a complaint of the team Delko Marseille of the Spaniard Javier Moreno (second across the finish line come quickly got the decision of the jury to Edet to downgrading. His French team Cofidis confirmed on social media that happened because of the left side of the road to the roundabout. So got Moreno the victory in the laps. Vichot is the second in the new that stage, the Swiss rider Marc Hirschi in third.

With still one more stage to go, Moreno is also the new leader of the standings. He takes the leader’s jersey from Hugo Hofstetter, a team mate of Edet. After the arrival said to Moreno that he would prefer in a different way had won, but that “it could not what Edet had done. So should you be a roundabout not cut off”.
