John Degenkolb sprints to victory in Gent-Wevelgem.

30 march 2014

John Degenkolb (Giant-Shimano) won Gent-Wevelgem by half a wheel in a crash-marred bunch sprint on Sunday.

A late break containing Silvan Dillier (BMC), Stijn Devolder (Trek) and Andrey Amador (Movistar) had just been retrieved as the race entered its final kilometer. A crash in midpack disrupted the dash to the line, and defending champion Peter Sagan (Cannondale) led out the sprint, only to see both Degenkolb and Arnaud Demare ( blast past him at the line.
