Adam Hansen (Lotto Belisol) soloed to victory during the 19th La Vuelta a Espana stage after attacking in the final 5km’s of the stage. John Degenkolb (Giant-Shimano) won the select bunch sprint for 2nd ahead of Fillipo Pozzato (Lampre-Merida). There was only 56 riders in the front group today but Sergio Pardilla made sure he was one of them, crossing the line in 26th place. The early racing saw multiple attacks once again with both Jay Thomson and Jaco Venter represented in separate moves. Both of which were brought back before the gaps reached more than a minute. Eventually 3 riders went clear, Wout Poels.
