Tao Geoghegan Hart dedicated his spectacular victory in Austria on stage one of Tour of the Alps for Ineos Grenadiers to his Dad.

The British rider timed his final kick to the line to perfection, passing Jack Haig of Bahrain Victorious and Hugh Carthy of EF Education-EasyPost to take control of the race on day one, exactly as Ineos DS Matteo Tosatto had pre-empted prior to the race getting underway.
