Cort Neilsen sprints to Vuelta stage win

by Mark Zalewski

Magnus Cort Neilsen (ORICA-BikeExchange) won the field sprint on stage 18 of the Vuelta, ahead of Nikias Arndt (Team Giant – Alpecin) and Jean-Pierre Drucker (BMC).

The main break of the day consisted of: Fumiyuki Beppu (Trek – Segafredo), Quentin Jauregui (AG2R – La Mondiale), Louis Vervaeke (Lotto Soudal), Pierre Rolland (Cannondale – Drapac) and Mattia Cattaneo (Lampre – Merida). At 27km to go Jauregui and Vervaeke attacked the break as the peloton cut the gap to under a minute.

At 11km to go the break was caught and sprint teams worked to keep the race under control. At 3km to go Jan Bakelants (AG2R-La Mondiale) tried to go but it was for naught.

Spread across the road at 2km to go, sprint teams and GC teams each tried to place their protected riders in the best position.

After the final turn all organisation was abandoned at the front of the race and in the final 200m individual riders were spread across the road, each driving for the line. Jempy Drucker had the early lead and looked to be the fastest, but was swarmed near the line with Magnus Cort Neilsen taking the win.

Today’s feature image is from the 1987 Tour de France when photographers decided not to take any pictures of the Tour for one day in protest of the race direction’s limiting of their access compared to VIP vehicles.

    Re the Sky Bus video. When I rode back from a TDU stage the only dangerous passes I had were by professional team cars and vans.

    Maybe it’s driving on the wrong side of the road for them or something worse.

      Marginal gains: discouraging cyclists before they become the competition!

    The flatscreen tv idea is brilliant. A great example of thinking outside the box.
