Israel Start-Up Nation's Michael Woods has taken the victory of the second stage at the Tour des Alps Maritimes et du Var and he seized the lead of the General Classification.

The second day of the French competition took the peloton through a 168.9-kilometre route from and to Fayence that featured a second category ascent and a climbing finish. The finale witnessed a scenario like the one of the day before, but Woods was this time the rider that accelerated and couldn't be caught by the rest.

Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) crossed the finish line and lost the leader's jersey and now he sits in second position, one second behind the Canadian. Groupama-FDJ's David Gaudu is in the third overall position, at six seconds from Woods, and with one mountain stage to go.

This is the first victory of Woods in the colours of Israel Start-Up Nation after making the move from EF Education-Nippo, where he spent the past five seasons.
