UAE Team Emirates star Alexander Kristoff raised his arms in triumph after clinching victory at the GP Canton d’Argovie Gippingen.

The Norwegian won in his comeback to racing after injury, beating Andrea Pasqualon in a rapid sprint finish.

The 31-year-old had already sealed victory in the GP Canton d’Argovie Gippingen, winning in 2015 and 2018. With Thursday’s success, the Stavanger native registers his fifth win of the year, while pushing UAE Team Emirates’ win tally to 19 this season.

Kristoff said: “Today I felt good and I wanted to repay the good work done by the team to control the breakaway.

“I am very happy with the win, and look forward to benefitting from the hard work of my teammates for more opportunities at the Tour du Suisse.”
