Bahrain-Merida dominate in Hammer Climb

Bahrain-Merida took the win on the first day of Hammer Limburg, working a Mark Padun-Sonny Colbrelli one-two to beat Lotto-Soudal in the Hammer Climb. Colbrelli's stamina and sprinting ability saw him take points early and continue to compete late on after Padun had gone up the road on lap six, staying out front until the final lap.
