Wegmann wins stage 1 Dauphine sprint

Zabriskie's ride in the leader's jersey didn't last very long -- Fabiann Wegmann beat out the rest of his four-man break to take the victory and the overall lead. Wegmann's got the strength for the breakaway sprint -- I've previously seen Wegmann catch up to a Jason McCartney/John Lieswyn breakaway and then outsprint them for victory in San Francisco. Fellow breakaway-ees Tommy Voeckler couldn't beat Wegmann in the sprint, but France should be excited to see him in the King of the Mountains jersey tomorrow.
