Vattenfall Cyclassics - Race Overview

2014 Liege-Bastogne-Liege winner Simon Gerrans has rounded out the podium at the Vattenfall Cyclassics in Hamburg this afternoon, finishing third in the bunch sprint.

Fresh from a three-week training stint, the Australian champion was surprised to final his races legs so quickly in his return race.

“I felt pretty good from the start which I was surprised about,” Gerrans said.

“I had a few days off after San Sebastian just to recover from the Tour de France and that whole block of racing and then did a couple of weeks training up in the mountains.

“Hamburg was my first race back since then so it was a really good test actually.
