Team Sky’s Sergio Henao wins Paris-Nice by two seconds

Monday, 13 March 2017 :   Team Sky’s Sergio Henao held on to claim a thrilling overall victory in Paris-Nice by just two seconds from Alberto Contador.

But he was beaten to the stage win by Quick-Step Floors’ David de la Cruz and took eight instead of 10 bonus seconds.

Henao, 29, trailed by a minute at one point but chased to finish 21 seconds down and secure the yellow jersey.

Team Sky have now won five Paris-Nice titles in the past six years and three consecutively, after former rider Richie Porte’s success in 2015 and Briton Geraint Thomas’ victory last year.

Ireland’s Dan Martin completed the podium behind Henao and Contador, while Britain’s Simon Yates finished ninth overall, following his victory on stage six.
