Matthews wins in Almeria
Australian Michael Matthews gave Rabobank their first victory of the season by winning the Clasica de Almeria.
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.
