Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Visma) took his second stage win in two days at Paris-Nice 2019, winning stage two of the race from a small front group that had escaped in crosswinds.

Race leader Groenewegen beat Ivan García (Bahrain-Merida) and Philippe Gilbert (Deceeninck-Quick-Step) to the line in the final sprint from the front group of seven, which also included Egan Bernal and Michał Kwiatkowski (both Team Sky), Luis León Sánchez (Astana) and Matteo Trentin (Mitchelton-Scott).
