Alexander Kristoff obtained his eighth podium of the season in the Grand Prix Morbihan (1.Pro) which was organized on the circuit around Grand-Champ this Saturday.
Thanks to impressive teamwork, the Norwegian rider battled for the victory on the final uphill kilometer (4%)
Even though the early breakaway was caught relatively far from the finish line thanks to the work of Kévin Van Melsen and Corné Van Kessel, two other attackers resisted for a long time to the peloton.
The dedication of neopro Hugo Page then enabled the bunch to close the 30 second gap to the duo in the approach to the final 10 kilometer.
Dimitri Claeys and Baptiste Planckaert launched Kristoff, who was only defeated by Julien Simon. The Frenchman anticipated the sprint with an attack 500 meter before the finish and resisted to the powerful return of the Norwegian rider.
