Marco Haller (Bora-Hansgrohe) produced a big upset to beat Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) in a sprint to win the Bemer Cyclassics.
The pair were part of a five-man move that made it away to contest the finish, and Haller used a lead-out from teammate Patrick Konrad to hit out early.
Van Aert was left scrambling as Haller moved left and Quinten Hermans (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert) snatched the slipstream. He fought back and moved out, passing Hermans, but it was too late to overhaul Haller.
The Austrian rider roared in delight as he crossed the line, and then again several times beyond it as he soaked up the biggest win of his career.
