Matthews beat Slovenian Borut Bozic (Astana) and German Roger Kluge (Project 1t4i) to the line in a sprint finish at the end of the 185.6km race.

The 21-year-old former under-23 road race world champion enjoyed three victories last season, including a triumph on Spanish soil at the Vuelta a Murcia.

The 1.HC race usually favours the sprinters with Theo Bos, Greg Henderson and Juan Jose Haedo among the recent winners.
