Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco - Race Overview

ORICA-SCOTT wrap up the six-day tour, Vuelta al Pais Vasco, content having claimed a stage victory with Michael Albasini after strong teamwork throughout the week.

The final and sixth stage of the race today was a 27.7kilometre individual time trial. Simon Yates was the highest finisher for ORICA-SCOTT in 26th place, as the general classification riders battled it out with Primoz Roglic (Lotto-Jumbo) claiming the stage victory. 

“The plan today was to try and finish the job off well,” said sport director Neil Stephens. “Basically it was a good quality training ride for us, we really didn’t have anything to gain or lose. We could have been in a position today going for the win if things had panned out a little different, so we wanted to try again and see how we go.”
