Greipel wins in Berlin

Favourite Andre Greipel won the ProRace Berlin after a thrilling sprint finish on Sunday.

Eurosport

The Lotto-Belisol rider from Germany surged past Katusha’s Rudiger Selig on the finish line to take victory after a 186km ride.

Dutchman Raymond Kreder of Garmin Barracuda was third.

It was Greipel’s 12th victory of the season.

Selig had been leading and looked set to take the victory with 50m to go, but Greipel showed his trademark acceleration to snatch the win.

Greipel is now in fine form ahead of the Tour de France, having taken impressive multiple wins in Luxembourg and Belgium over the past month.
