Michael Matthews powers to Bretagne Classic victory

Michael Matthews (Team Sunweb) won the the 84th edition of Bretagne Classic. Luka Mezgec (Mitchelton-Scott) and Florian Senechal (Deceuninck-Quickstep) finished second and third respectively.

In rain-slicked roads, the race was filled with attacks but it came down to a sprint finish from a small group.

Matthews’ teammate Nils Eekhoff appeared to be in position to take the win in the final sprint, but eased to allow Matthews to claim the victory.

“Luca had to go early in the sprint so I could wait. I just timed my sprint to perfection, I guess,” Matthews said at the finish.

“After my crash in Milan-San Remo it was difficult for my head. I knew that I had really good shape but to come back here, for my second race after lockdown, I’m really happy.”
