Elia Viviani wins bunch sprint in Cyclassics Hamburg

Elia Viviani (Team Sky) claimed the win in the bunch sprint at the Cyclassics Hamburg. Second place went to Arnaud Demare (FDJ), while Dylan Groenewegen (LottoNl-Jumbo) finished third

With ten kilometres to go, the peloton broke and two groups were formed. The front group had riders like Edvald Boasson Hagen (Dimension Data), Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) and Daryl Impey (Orica-Scott) and the chasers included favourites like Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) and Arnaud Demare (FDJ).

However, with 5km to go everything was back together and the bunch sprint loomed. Viviani powered past Alexander Kristoff (Katusha-Alpecin) and easily cruised in to take his first Cyclassics Hamburg win.
