He took his first win in the World Tour classified race Tour of Beijing, in a massive sprint where he had the upper hand on established sprinters such as Alessandro Petacchi (Lampre–ISD) and Elia Viviani (Liquigas–Cannondale).[3] In 2015, he was the surprise winner of the Tour des Fjords after featuring in the last stage's breakaway.[4]
