The Frenchman took the yellow jersey after finishing the course in three minutes and 43 seconds on the city streets, replicating his success in 2010.

RadioShack-Nissan duo Gregory Rast and Jonathan Hivert both came next three seconds down.

The first stage proper takes place on Thursday with a 181km trek from Luxembourg to Hesperange which is likely to culminate in a bunch sprint.
