2018 Vuelta a España

STAGE 3: Mijas to Alhaurín de la Torre

August 27, 2018

This stage will feature the first favorable arrival for sprinters in a Vuelta that will not provide them with many other opportunities. The day’s only mountain pass, a category 1 climb, is located at the start of the stage, which should not break up the race too much.

Elia Viviani (Quick-Step Floors) stormed to his first career Vuelta a España stage victory on Monday.

The 29-year-old Italian national champion launched his sprint out of a cluster of fast finishers inside the final 200 meters of stage 3. He held of Trek-Segafredo’s Giacomo Nizzolo and Bora-Hansgrohe’s Peter Sagan to take a convincing victory in the town of Alhaurín de la Torre.

Sky’s Michal Kwiatkowski finished safely in the peloton a few moments later to maintain his grip on the overall race leader’s jersey.

Monday’s route took on a first-category climb inside the opening hour of racing, but with a profile that eased off in the second half of the day, stage 3 was a chance the sprinters did not want to miss.

Pierre Rolland (EF Education First-Drapac), Jordi Simón (Burgos-BH), Nans Peters (Ag2r La Mondiale), Antonio Molina (Caja Rural-Seguros RGA), Luis Ángel Maté (Cofidis), and Héctor Sáez (Euskadi-Murias) made their way clear of the peloton in the early goings to form the day’s main breakaway. The six-man group worked its advantage up to a maximum of four minutes before the pack decided to tighten the leash.

The gap was down to two minutes around the midway point of the stage. The escapees took just one minute into the final 60 kilometers. As the peloton closed in — and Rolland dropped back from the move due to a puncture — Lotto Soudal’s Victor Campenaerts and Jelle Wallays, Alexis Gougeard of Ag2r La Mondiale, and Lukas Postlberger of Bora Hansgrohe jumped out of the peloton and bridged up to the move. That made for for a reconfigured breakaway of nine riders trying to hold off a peloton less than a minute behind.

The new-look escape was unable to survive the hard-charging pack. The pace proved too much for Wallays and then Peters, and Campenaerts crashed. Postlberger soloed away and stayed clear into the final 10 kilometers, but the race was all back together with five to go.

Movistar led the race into the last few kilometers in an effort to keep GC leader Nairo Quintana safe, and then the sprinters mobbed the front for the final kilometer. Viviani tucked himself behind Sagan’s wheel a few spots behind the front of the race as the fast finishers accelerated into the final 500 meters. With 200 meters to go line, he made his jump, coming around on Sagan’s right and blasting up to full speed. Nizzolo moved onto his wheel and tried to match his compatriot’s pace, but Viviani crossed the line well ahead for the win.
