The New Zealand cyclist Greg Henderson has played a big part in helping his Lotto team-mate Andre Greipel to victory on the second stage of the Paris-Nice tour.
Henderson expertly led out Greipel as the German won the sprint finish on the 172-kilometre stage.
Poland's world champion Michal Kwiatkowski holds onto the leader's yellow jersey.
Jack Bauer is the best placed of the New Zealanders in 15th position overall, 16 seconds off the lead riding for his Cannondale-Garmin team.
Dubbed "The Race to the Sun" the tour continues tonight with a 179-kilometre stage from Saint-Amand-Montrond to Saint-Pourain-sur-Sioule.
The seven-stage tour finishes this weekend.
