Alessandro De Marchi (BMC): “That was the first stage that I had targeted. The good thing is that we were there. Then, you know… You play and sometimes you win, sometimes, you lose. I was feeling good. I just lacked a little bit of strength at the top of the last KOM. It's the first day that I try. I'm quite happy. It's not easy to be there. I just have to wait. La Vuelta is long. I'll try to grow into the race and wait for the right moment.”

  • Mohoric displays his talent

    Matej Mohoric, a former Junior and U23 World champion, snatched his first Grand Tour victory at the end of stage 7 of La Vuelta 2017, on Friday. The Slovenian rider attacked from the gun and then dominated his breakaway companions for a brilliant solo win at Cuenca. He's the first rider from his country to win at La Vuelta since Borut Bozic in 2009. The crosswinds and a tricky final didn't prevent Chris Froome (Team Sky) from retaining the red jersey one more day.
