Start 17h00 (Local time)

Key moments

Matteo Trentin (Quick-Step Floors) once again displayed his raw power on the final stage of La Vuelta 2017, dominating the ultimate bunch gallop to claim a fourth stage win. The Italian sprinter was faster than Lorrenzo Manzin (FDJ) and Soren Kragh Andersen (Team Sunweb) in the streets of Madrid. 11th of the stage, Chris Froome (Team Sky) is the first British winner of La Vuelta and the third rider to win the Spanish Grand Tour and the Tour de France in the same year after Jacques Anquetil...

Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida): “It's not easy to bring the victory back home in each Grand Tour. But I think we've worked really well to deliver a great result. Second behind Chris Froome is a big result. He was the man to beat. Chris and his team have done a great job. We've fought till the end. We've looked for the occasions to get the win but it hasn't been simple. Honour to Froome for having won the Tour and La Vuelta. With podiums at the Giro and La Vuelta it makes for a positive...

Miguel Angel Lopez (Astana), best young rider: “I'm very happy. Furthermore after giving so much during La Vuelta. Above all, thanks to my team, we always depend on them in case of a mechanical or a crash. We won the team classification and three stages, so it's a very positive balance. I've always dreamed of being the best young rider of a Grand Tour and fortunately La Vuelta has created the red bib this year. I hope there will be a jersey next year, it's even more of a motivation.”

Chris Froome (Team Sky), overall winner: “It's just incredible. Today in the finale I figured this would probably be the only time in my life to try and win the points classification in a Grand Tour. We gave it everything and managed to get a few points… I obviously couldn't be happier with the result. It was a competition to be won and that's it. I'm still coming to terms with everything. It's been such an incredible journey… Just the fact that nobody's ever won the Tour and then La...

Contador: “It's a dream”

Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo): “I don't have words to explain the feeling I had in that moment. To cross the finish alone in front of my home public… Usually I train in the traffic, I don't have the road for me. And there after 15 very very hard years of fighting, today is a special day. It's a dream. I don't know a goodbye better than this. Now is the moment to stop. When I started as a professional, I said I wanted to finish at the top level. And I think that now is the perfect...

Davide Villella (Cannondale-Drapac), winner of the KOM classification: “It means a lot to me. It's a huge emotion to bring the jersey to Madrid. I had it from Andorra (stage 3) until the last day. I want to thank my team for all the support they gave me to make this possible. I'm happy. My next big goal will be the Giro di Lombardia, a race that means something special to me. I hope to be among the best there and then I'll think about the future.”

Matteo Trentin (Quick Step), stage winner: “The whole team worked incredible the whole day. I think it could be seen in the television. The job started from when we entered the circuit to the finish and we could gain another victory. (Chris) Froome told me he wanted to defend the green jersey. It's a pity (not to get the green jersey) after four victories. I won two bunch sprints and two hard days and I can be happy with it”
