BEIJING (AP) — Norwegian cyclist Thor Hushovd won the first stage of the Tour of Beijing on Friday.

The BMC team rider, known for his sprinting, took advantage of the flat conditions on the 118-mile stage northeast of Beijing.

After more than four hours of racing, Hushovd took the leader's red jersey. Luka Mezgec of Slovenia was second and Nikolas Maes of Belgium third.

The five-stage tour ends Tuesday.
