People Choice Classic: Marcel Kittel's first win of the season - hardly the last one

Embedded image permalink
Marcel Kittel:
"My boys did an awesome job. We always try to come back and stay together as much as possible and it was sort of a good lead-out with all the chaos.
I'm always very nervous before the first race. I'm just super happy that it's worked out. We had a good time ahead of this race, on time in Australia and with time to adapt. After this win, I'm now looking forward to the Tour Down Under."
