Matthias Skilmoz soloed to victory at the Maryland Cycling Classic

Matthias Skilmoz (Lidl-Trek) won in dominant fashion the second edition of the Maryland Cycling Classic in Baltimore on Sunday. The Danish champion attacked from a five-runner front group with two laps remaining and crossed the line with just over two minutes in the chasing group.

First major selection came in the grueling race, made even more difficult by the sweltering temperatures, with 65 miles of the 121-mile race as the field split leaving around 35 riders in front. More aggressive racing led to a final group of six battling it out for victory at the first of four city circuits. The group also included Toms Skoggis (Lidl-Trek), Hugo Holly (Israel-Premier Tech), Nelson Pauwels (EF Education-EasyPost) and Lucas Hamilton (Jayco-AlUla).
