In his third attempt, Raymond Kreder (Garmin Sharp) got the win at the Garmin Velothon Berlin as he outsprinted Sam Bennett (NetApp-Endura) and Alexander Porsev (Katusha). The 175km event, formally known as ProRace Berlin, has become one of Germany's biggest one-day races since its inception into the calendar in 2011.

Normally part of Tyler Farrar’s lead-out train, Kreder was given his own opportunities in Berlin and duly delivered.

"I knew the Velothon course well because I have already done the race twice," Kreder told Radsport News after claiming his win. "That's why I knew which tactic to use. My teammates supported me well and I was in the front during the last two laps. I am really pleased with this victory.

The 24-year-old Dutchman was sixth in 2013 and third in the 2012 edition of the race. Kreder won stage two of the Tour of Norway in his first year as a pro in 2012 and the Garmin Velothon Berlin is his first win since.
