Elia Viviani (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) took his third consecutive victory at the EuroEyes Cyclassics Hamburg, beating Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal) and Giacomo Nizzolo (Dimension Data) to the line in a bunch finish.
Pascal Ackermann (Bora-hansgrohe) was among the big names caught out by the hard racing.
With five kilometers left, Deceuninck-Quick-Step and Lotto Soudal took over command of the field. Michael Morkov delivered Viviani into the final 200 meters with a textbook lead-out and then Viviani powered up to speed.
Although Ewan was well-positioned on his wheel, there was no catching Viviani, who took a convincing third straight win at the line.
