Cycling - Engoulvent wins Luxembourg time trial again

Jimmy Engoulvent won a fourth Tour de Luxembourg prologue time trial in almost the same time he managed last year.


The Sojasun rider finished the 2.55km Luxembourg city course in three minutes and 42 seconds, 1s quicker than his 2012 time.

The Frenchman, 33, started 25th of 130 so had a long wait to see if he had managed to add to his 2007, 2010 and 2012 time trial wins.

Danny Poppel was agonisingly close, the 19-year-old Vacansoleil-DCM rider finishing just 1s short of victory.

Engoulvent’s Sojasun team-mate Jonathan Hivert was just behind in third.
