Second place went to Pascal Ackermann (Bora Hansgrohe).
“Today I had good legs and with the team we raced really well, always in the front and ready for any moves happening in the race” says Jasper Philipsen “The goal here was to try to win with me or with Alex and we went very close, it only came down to a matter of a few centimeters.
We hope that next time luck will be on our side”.
