The German rider from the Cofidis team, who has just joined the team, won his first race of 2022 at the GP de DENAIN.
"I am very proud to have won this race and of all the work that was done during the whole day by the team. We had a bit of everything: it looked like a classic, then Paris-Roubaix and it ended with a sprint. Tom Bohli, Piet Allegaert and all my team-mates did a great job to get this result. This victory means a lot to me because it shows that I have the confidence of the team. I am very happy with the atmosphere in the team and to be part of the success of Cofidis since the beginning of the season. It also helps me to build up my confidence before my main objective: to get the best possible result in Paris-Roubaix."
