The Queen Stage of the Vuelta was 225km long with another 17km of neutralised riding. There were four first category climbs including a “summit” finish to Peyragudes.
The result? The top-5 on GC all finished on the same time.
Daniele Ratto (Cannondale) wins Stage 14 of the Vuelta. His solo win came after a cold day on the road with heavy rain but he was still warm enough to enjoy the moment.
Lucky for some: Warren Barguil (Argos-Shimano) wins Stage 13 of the Vuelta a Espana.
Domenico Pozzovivo was third in today’s time trial in the Vuelta. Looks like he didn’t use a time trial frame but opted for a normal Focus Izalco Team.
Daniel Moreno (Katusha) wins Stage 5 of the Vuelta
A marine start to the Vuelta a Espana. Astana won the stage to put Janez Brajkovic into the overall lead.
Zdeněk Štybar wins Stage 3 of the Eneco Tour. A bunch sprint looked likely but with one kilometre to go Jurgen Roelandts took a hard pull on the front and a split occured. Strangely the Lotto-Belisol rider looked back and then kept the power going despite his sprinter André Greipel being left behind and taking Štybar, Lars Boom and Max Richeze in his wake.
Štybar waited for the right moment and sprinted past Richeze for a clever win.
Arnaud Démare (FDJ.fr) wins Stage 2 of the Eneco Tour. The sprinter beat Philippe Gilbert and Tyler Farrar in an uphill sprint to Vorst, on the edge of Brussels
