Poland’s Michał Kwiatkowski and Slovakia’s Peter Sagen were neck and neck for the lead. Kwiatkowski and Sagan rode the final 20 kilometers (12 miles) ahead of the pack.
„I knew I had really good legs today and I had to go for the win, there was no other option,” Kwiatkowski said after sealing a second consecutive victory for Team Sky at the E3. Sagen, the defending world champion, started the final sprint and left the rest of the riders behind. With just 250 metres left, Michał Kwiatkowski, sprinted all out for the finishing line, with Sagan unable to respond. Kwiatkowski finished three seconds ahead of Sagan to notch his first win of this season. Britain’s Ian Stannard came in third.
