⚊ WHAT HAPPENED ? ⚊

A German athlete, riding for a German team, winning on German roads: Pascal Ackermann could not have found a better way to celebrate Labour Day on May 1. The Bora-hansgrohe rider interrupted Alexander Kristoff’s winning streak at Eschborn-Frankfurt, preventing him from taking a fifth consecutive win at the German UCI WorldTour event. Despite suffering from cramps, Norway’s Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates) made it onto the third step of the podium after a hectic bunch sprint that saw another German, John Degenkolb (Trek Segafredo) finish second.

⚊ WHAT HAPPENED ? ⚊

It was going to take more than cold and predictions of snow to deter former ski-jumper Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) from confirming his superiority on the fourth stage of the Tour de Romandie, in Switzerland. In the lead since winning stage one, the Slovenian appeared to be in his element as he claimed victory in the Queen stage - albeit shortened due to the risk of snow and high winds - with an impressive sprint at the uphill finish in the ski resort of Torgon.  Back down from the mountains for the following day’s fifth and final stage – an 18.6km time trial in Geneva – he took a convincing win over time trial European Champion and UCI Hour Record holder Victor Campenaerts (Lotto Soudal), to claim the Tour de Romandie for the second consecutive year.
