Alexander Kristoff wins Clasica de Almeria


Alexander Kristoff took his first victory with Intermarche-Wanty Gobert at Clasica de Almeria after a bunch sprint.

Kristoff delivered after a strong leadout and beat Nacer Bouhanni (Arkea-Samsic) and Giacomo Nizzolo (Israel-Premier Tech) in coastal city Roquetas de Mar.

“It was a great day for me,” Kristoff said. “We have a good team for this type of race, and we managed to keep it together in the finale. It was quite technical with lots of roundabouts but we held a good position thanks to the team.

“In finale I had a lot help from Pasqualon, Petit Claeys, so I came into the final straight in the best position. It was a headwind so was maybe a little bit hard to take it from the front, but I still had the legs.”
