John Degenkolb opened his season with a victory, sprinting to the win in the first day of the Challenge Cyclista Mallorca from Campos to Ses Salines.

Trek-Segafredo surrounded Degenkolb with a team of Classics and lead-out specialists for the 178-kilometer race, giving the German sprinter the support he needed for a much-needed win with his last almost a year ago in the Dubai Tour.

“It’s a great feeling to get the first victory already, to achieve this together with the team,” Degenkolb explained to journalists shortly after the finish. “We had a really nice week of training already this week in Mallorca, in the training camp, and to start the season like this with a win is always great.

“I felt really good; the team did a perfect job to make a good sprint for me. I have good memories of this race because for me this was my first professional race in 2011. Today was a great revival.”
