Fourth for Gibson at stage one of Tour of Istria

Home » Great Britain Cycling Team

Great Britain’s Matt Gibson came fourth as stage one of the Tour of Istria finished in a bunch sprint in Croatia.

The opening leg of the three-day race took riders 114 kilometres from Porec, down western Croatia before turning back up the heart of the country to Buzket.

France’s Aurelien Paret-Peintre took the stage win.

The event, the second race in the UCI Junior Nations’ Cup, features a six-person Great Britain squad - Joe Fry, Leon Gledhill, Matt Gibson, Matt Bostock, Joe Evans and Gabriel Cullaigh.

Cullaigh had been involved a late break with 10 kilometres remaining.

But it was caught by the peloton and with no one able to break free, it was left to a sprint with Joe Evans helping teammate Gibson in the closing kilometres.

Saturday’s stage two is a 90-kilometres journey from Umag to Labin across the breadth of Croatia to Labin.
