Katusha’s Toni Colom gave his newly-formed team its first overall stage race victory of the season winning, the Mallorcan Trophy, a five-stage race which ended here Thursday, for the second time.
German sprinter Gerald Ciolek (Milram) claimed victory in the fifth and final stage held over 147km between Magaluf and Palmanova.
Katusha, Russian-funded and the newest addition to the pro cycling peloton, dominated the race almost from start to finish.
Sprinter Gert Steegmans, formerly of Quick Step, won the first stage and Australian teammate Robbie McEwen emulated the Belgian’s feat the next day.
Liquigas’s Daniele Bennati won the third stage but Colom took control of the race by winning the fourth stage which finished in his home town of Bunyola on Wednesday.
Colom won the race in 2004.
