The rider from Team Lotto-Soudal claimed the first victory.
It was only his second race day and Tim Wellens already claimed his first victory of the season! For the second year in a row he was the best at the Trofeo Serra de Tramuntana, one of the four races of the Challenge Mallorca. The Trofeo was 140 kilometres long and contained six official climbs, starting with Coll de Sóller immediately after the start. Sondre Holst Enger, who sprinted to the second place yesterday, rode solo in front for a long time. On the Coll de sa Batalla, with top at about forty kilometres from the finish, the situation changed.
Tim Wellens, atop on his Ridley bike equipped with Campagnolo Super Record EPS electronic groupset and Campagnolo full carbon wheels, got in a front group with Brambilla, Moscon, Mühlberger and Valverde. In the descent Moscon and Wellens created a gap again. A sprint between the two would determine the winner. It was a fair sprint, man against man.
