Always a bit odd, this one, when sprinters get up the ramp and win. Suits the lighter / Classics-oriented ones among them, so no surprises with Colbrelli, Cort Nielsen, Viviani and even, to some extent, Kristoff.
Magnus Cort shouldn't be considered a sprinter anyway. In his U23 years, his wins in Danish races came mostly at the top of short, steep hills, and he's been said to be a future Amstel Gold Race winner (when that race still finished at the top of the Cauberg).

Why he has been shoehorned into a sprinter's role once he turned pro I don't understand; I've always viewed him as someone akin to Michael Matthews, yet more on the puncheurs' side of things than Bling.
