STA, 27 August 2018 - Slovenian cyclist Matej Mohorič, a member of the Bahrain Merida pro cycling team, has won the Deutschland Tour after placing second in the closing, 207.5-km stage between Lorsch and Stuttgart on Sunday, keeping the overall lead he had secured a day earlier by winning Saturday's stage. 

Mohorič finished six seconds ahead of the winner of the final stage, Germany's Nils Politt (Katusha-Alpecin), while another German, Maximilian Schachmann (Quick-Step Floors) placed third.

His overall victory in the most important multi-stage road bicycle race in Germany comes a week after he won the BinckBank Tour in the Benelux region to become the fourth Slovenian to win a world series race after Primož Roglič, Simon Špilak and Grega Bole.

Mohorič's win is the fifth overall stage race victory for Slovenian racers this season: apart from his two wins, Primož Roglič has won the Tour of the Basque Country, the Tour de Romandie and the Tour of Slovenia.

"Today's victory is a team achievement. We did everything to keep us in the forefront and control the situation... I'm super happy with myself and the team," Mohorič told Bahrain Merida's website yesterday.
