Pascal Ackermann wins a wet race.

The race: Here's the report from winner Pascal Ackermann's Bora-hansgrohe team.

After a crash with 80km to go, the BORA – hansgrohe train worked hard for their leader Pascal Ackermann. In the finale, the young German Champion waited until the perfect moment and sprinted to his third WorldTour victory in this season and took the win ahead of E. Viviani.

The Course
After the Grand Prix Cerami, BORA – hansgrohe travelled to London and turned its attention to the Prudential RideLondon, the 1.UWT race. The 187km course included five intermediate sprints and five categorised climb and went through the city of London.

The Team Tactics
BORA – hansgrohe focused on their German Champion Pascal Ackermann, the team was to concentrate their efforts on bringing Pascal into an optimal position in the finishing strait, to give him the best chance at producing a strong result.

The Race
The race started at 14:00 on wet streets and after some kilometres of racing six riders pulled away and built the breakaway of the day, while BORA – hansgrohe stayed in the peloton. 

With 50km to go Jay McCarthy and Peter Kennaugh launched an attack and formed a new breakaway with 5 other opponents, however it came all back together with 10km to go. The BORA - hansgrohe train started to form for their leader Pascal Ackermann. Rudi Selig and Christoph Pfingsten brought the German Champion into a perfect position, Pascal waited for the perfect moment and started his sprint to take his third WorldTour victory in this season. 

From the Finish Line
"Today was a hard race, the rain made the course really dangerous I crashed with 80km to go and had to change my bike. As we came into the finale, Rudi and Pfingsti bought me into a perfect position, I waited and started my sprint and finished it off with my third WorldTour victory in this season. I am more than happy." – Pascal Ackermann

“The boys did everything we planned, we had two guys in the breakaway of the day and Pascal finished it off with a great victory. Right from the start the team worked together and, in the finale, the guys brought Pascal into the perfect position. We can be proud to have a squad, where everyone gave his best for the team.” – André Schulze, sports director
