A question on Tracert result

Trace complete.

I'm curious why step 1 (to my router) should be so much slower than the rest. Has it any particular significance?

No significance at all. It's just an indication that your router is prioritising through traffic (its actual work) and giving a low priority to the ping response. You'll often find some of the hops on a tracert timing out or returning high values for the same reason. From a performance point of view, all that matters is the value shown against the last hop (the destination).
