The sprinter took also the first red jersey as races overall leader. Alexander Kristoff (UAE - Team Emirates) took second place on the slightly uphill finish ahead of his teammate Simone Consonni.
In the previous year, the Deutschland Tour celebrated a highly successful premiere and promises an open and eventful race in 2019 on four varied stages. This year's route leads through the heart of Germany and commemorates the opening of the inner-German border on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. After starting in Hanover, a sprint decision is the most likely scenario in Halberstadt, but the following three stages to Göttingen, Eisenach and Erfurt are much more demanding in the final.
Grand Tour winners, more than a dozen Tour de France stage winners as well as World, European and national champions, Monument winners, cycling legends and up-and-coming youngsters – the Deutschland Tour brings together the sport’s best. In addition to national top riders, like the German rising star of the Tour de France Emanuel Buchmann, current top sprinter Pascal Ackermann and Paris-Roubaix runner-up Nils Politt, a notable list of international pros was named in the provisional line-up of the 22 teams.
