Tour de Pologne 2018: Pascal Ackerman sprints to grab second victory

Bora- Hansgrobe’s Pascal Ackerman has once and for all confirmed that he is the best sprinter at this season’s Tour de Pologne as he grabbed his second victory in less than 30 hours.

 

On Saturday’s race, Ackermann won first as he crossed the finish line wearing his German National Champion jersey while yesterday, the Bora-Hansgrobe rider was welcomed by the finish line crowd wearing the yellow, leader’s jersey.

 

Second place went to Colombian Alvaro Hodeg from Quick-Step Floors.

 

 

“It was risky because I was going too fast in the end to find a perfect line and then I had to go to the right side,” Ackermann said. “It was critical but it was OK, I think.”
