Cycling: Kreuziger wins Giro di Sardegna

Young Czech cycling phenomenon Roman Kreuziger has won his first race in the new season, the Giro di Sardegna in Sardinia. The 23-year-old, who rides for Liquigas and finished ninth last year in the Tour de France, took command of the tour on Wednesday in the race’s second stage. He held onto the leader’s jersey after that; the tour is raced over five separate stages. Chris Horner of the USA finished second, four seconds behind the leader.
