Degenkolb wins Sparkassen Münsterland Giro

John Degenkolb (Giant-Alpecin) took his second win of the season Monday at the Sparkassen Münsterland Giro, a 208km one-day race in Germany from Gronau to Münster. Degenkolb out kicked Roy Jans (Wanty-Groupe Gobert) and Pascal Ackermann (Rad-net Rose Team) in a rain-slicked finale.

"There was perfect team spirit today and I am delighted with the victory," said Degenkolb, who took his first win of the season in August during stage 4 of the Acrtic Race of Norway. "It is really great to win in my home country. The team worked very hard throughout the whole race and gave me a great lead-out."

A group of six riders went clear of the peloton after 50km of racing, but a chase from Giant-Alpecin, Etixx-QuickStep and Lotto Soudal brought the race back together with 25km to go.

"We reacted well on the late attacks in the finale," Degenkolb said. "For the sprint I had the right position and could come through at the right moment, so that was fantastic."
