Ackermann beats Kittel to win Clasica de Almeria 2019

Pascal Ackermann (Bora-hansgrohe) sprinted to victory in the Clasica de Almeria after delivering a powerful sprint to see off the challenges of Marcel Kittel (Katusha-Alpecin) and Luka Mezgec (Mitchelton-Scott).

“It was a really hard race,” Ackermann said. “Actually 100km before the finish there was a split in the peloton. Mitchelton did it and then we came to the finish line and the sprint was a hard one.

“It’s good for the head to win really early in the season,” he added “I’m very happy for the victory and we can look forward to Algarve next week.”
