The victory was especially sweet after the recent Tour de France, where the team was ever present at the front of the peloton yet did not win a stage. KATUSHA showed its force near the end of the 185.9km Ride London race. With about 10km to go, Nils Politt drove the pace at the front of the pack to catch the breakaway with just 1 km to go. 

Kristoff rode do-it-all, 58mm deep Zipp 404s.
