Rain accompanies Volta a Catalunya peloton

Rain accompanies Volta a Catalunya peloton

It was wet and cold on the penultimate stage of the World Tour event, and this played into the favour of the small breakaway, who attacked from a long way out – on the 10.5km Coll de les Lebres – and held off the peloton, arriving almost one minute ahead in Cambrils, where Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) took the victory.

One of the just four teams to have won a stage before today, Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl started the day in five but finished it with just four men, after Ilan Van Wilder, who was sitting 16th in the general classification, abandoned due to the crash in which he was involved Friday.

The 101st edition of the Volta a Catalunya will come to an end Sunday afternoon, with the traditional stage in Barcelona, which will see the peloton tackle six times the famous Montjuic climb – the last of these ascents coming just five kilometers from the finish.
