Vuelta a España
Stage 10: Ponteareas - Sanxenxo - Stage Details


The second week of the Vuelta a España kicked off with a sprint stage. John Degenkolb (Argos-Shimano) won stage ten ahead of Nacer Bouhanni (FDF – BigMat) and Daniele Bennati (RadioShack-Nissan-Trek). Allan Davis managed 15th place in the sprint, freelancing in the finale after ORICA-GreenEDGE devoted riders to splitting the field earlier in the race. 

"I feel a bit guilty having asked the riders to multi-task the way they did. It’s a bit unfair to ask them to break up the bunch in the crosswinds and then do the sprint not much later. I rolled the dice, choosing one way because I thought we would gain the most from splitting the field. In the end, it turned out another way. We should have saved our energy for the sprint." - Sports Director Neil Stephens
