Giorgia Bronzini of Cylance Pro Cycling has won the opening stage of the Tour of Chongming Island, a UCI Women's WorldTour race consisting of three stages.

The first stage offered a great opportunity to sprinters as the 113.4km route was entirely flat.

But for some, the preparations for the final mass sprint were all for nothing as a crash at about one kilometer from the line ended the plans of several candidates including Wiggle High5's Kirsten Wild.

In the end, it was Bronzini to take the victory ahead of Doltcini-Van Eyck Sport's Kelly Druyts and Valcar PBM's Silvia Persico.

As such, Bronzini is also the first leader in the overall classification.

The race continues on Friday with a 122.2km flat stage that, just like the opening stage, is expected to result in a bunch sprint.
