The final stage of the Vuelta a Espana ran its course yesterday evening with John Degenkolb (Team-Alpecin) winning the final sprint in Madrid. Kristian Sbaragli, our stage 10 winner was again in the fold and took 8th position on the line. As expected the local circuit in Madrid was a true spectacle as spectators got to see the riders who have been racing their way around Spain for the last 3 weeks up close and at high speed.  After a number of really tough mountainous stages, the final stage of the Vuelta saw the sprinters teams allowed back into the limelight. Giant-Alpecin was keen on.
