Pascal Ackermann (Bora-hansgrohe) has crossed the finish line of Eschborn-Frankfurt in the first position. The rider was very pleased to take a victory in his home country before tackling the Giro d'Italia.

The German national champion had the strongest legs at the final sprint and beat John Degenkolb and Alexander Kristoff to the finish line. The rider and the team also finished off the details for the Giro d'Italia.

"We came here to Frankfurt with a goal, and that was to take the win," said Ackermann at the finish line. "It's a great feeling to have finished it off. The guys rode at the front of the peloton the whole day, and in the end, it was nice to be able to win.

"I was admittedly under quite some pressure today. We are a German team competing at a German race, and of course, we wanted to do everything we could to win. The team is in top form, and so we're looking forward to the upcoming Giro d'Italia."
