The Norwegian sprinter from Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux rewarded the exemplary teamwork of his teammates by his first podium of the season in Torrevieja this Saturday.
Just like two days before, the men under direction of Aike Visbeek and Steven De Neef took command of the final with the sprint train leading the bunch under the red flag.
Italian rider Andrea Pasqualon repeated his impressive effort in the lead out role before Kristoff started his sprint with 200 meter to go. After his fifth place on Thursday, Kristoff finished on the third step of the podium this time.
On Sunday, the stage race will be concluded by a 92 kilometer race circuit around Valencia, the capital of the region, where another bunch sprint is expected.
