Michael Albasini (Orica-Scott) won stage 2 of the Vuelta al Pais Vasco, sprinting to the win ahead of Maximiliano Richeze (Quickstep-Floors) and Sean De Bie (Lotto-Soudal). Michael Matthews (Sunweb-Giant) held on to the overall lead. Today’s 2nd stage of the Vuelta al Pais Vasco took riders from Pamplona to Eltziego over a course of 173km. An early climb invited those to go on the attack and 2 riders accepted the invitation from the gun. Igor Anton, our Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka climber who was in the break yesterday, jumped after the 2 attackers and he was followed the King of the Mountains leader Yoan.
