Pedersen stuns field with powerful sprint at BEMER Cyclassics


Mads Pedersen clinched BEMER Cyclassics title, after catching the breakaway in the closing metres of the one-day race in Hamburg, Germany.

Pedersen produced a dramatic acceleration from the peloton in the dying stages of the 205.6 kilometres race to take the win.

A three-man breakaway of Brandon McNulty, Nils Politt and Yves Lampaert looked like they were on course to fight out the win, before Pedersen’s intervention.

“The three guys still had a gap with 1km to go,” Pedersen said after the race. “I just tried to jump across as I was not sure we would catch them in the sprint. I was just going all-out and didn’t know what was happening from behind.

“Danny [Van Poppel] came pretty fast in the end, but luckily it was enough to take the victory.”
