The procyclist, known for his sprinting ability, took the win in a sunny, but windy San Pedro del Pinatar ahead of Australia's Graeme Brown in a fast sprint finish.
When asked about his win, Hunter said: "It’s nice to be rewarded for a lot of hard work. I'm happy to open up the season for Garmin-Transitions and show I am here to win races for them this year."
Let's hope this is the start of a rewarding season for Team Garmin-Transitions!
