Nico Denz takes third from breakaway on final stage of La Vuelta

On the last stage of the Vuelta, the escapees managed to take a surprise victory. Nico Denz and Lennard Kämna were both in the leading group of the day representing BORA-hansgrohe. It was a strong group that made it to the finish, with Nico eventually finishing a very respectable third behind Groves and Ganna.


As Nico explains: "Our plan was to create a bit of chaos with Lenny after the bonus sprint. I think he still wanted to give his Vuelta a good ending. The chances of us making it were slim, but Lenni gave everything to work for me in the group, because I have the faster finish between the two of us. In the end I waited too long, but we're talking about Groves and Ganna in a sprint, which is never going to be easy. It was certainly a nice show for the fans as well.”
