Bora-hansgrohe's Pascal Ackermann has won the German road race championships. The rider beat John Degenkolb (Trek-Segafredo) and Maximilian Walscheid (Sunweb) at the final sprint.

The German race took place over 228 kilometres in and around the city of Einhausen. The competition came to a final sprint in which the rider of Bora-hansgrohe showed to have the good legs that also gave him stage victories at the Tour de Romandie and the Criterium du Dauphine.

"Everything went really well today," commented the rider at the end of the event. "I did a lot of motor training in the last weeks and focused really well on this Sunday. My first WorldTour wins this season gave me confidence, but also strong mentally. Yesterday, Marcus (Burghardt) said he would love to hand over the jersey to me. But it still feels a little surreal now wearing it.

"We knew that it was key to go into the last corner already in front. My team did a great job to deliver me in a perfect position, I still had Rudi (Selig) in front of me coming on to the home straight, basically, I just had to roll over the line then."
