Kurth celebrates first season victory

Michael Kurth, new rider for the Team Kuota-Senges, won his first race of the season, in Düren-Merken, Germany. He decided the sprint of a six-man lead group in 80-kilometre circuit race. The move of the day came after initially 12 riders went clear. With Stefan Ganser and Matthias Bertling, Kurth had two team-mates with him. On the 2.3-kilometre long course, Kurth made the winning six-man break and proved strongest in the sprint.
