Volta Ciclista a Catalunya
Stage 4: Tona to La Molina - Stage Details

Colombian Esteban Chaves has demonstrated he is on track for his 2015 goals with a solid 14th place on the queen stage of the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya today.

The 2014 Tour de Suisse and Tour of California stage winner finished 30seconds behind stage winner Tejay Van Garderen (BMC Racing) to move into 14th overall, one-minute 13seconds in arrears of new race leader Bart De Clercq (Lotto Soudal)

Sport director Dave McPartland said the ride was a good indication of Chaves’ early season form and a pleasing progression from twelve months earlier.

“Considering the guys that are racing, Esteban did a really good job today,” McPartland said. “Today was a really good measuring tool to see where he is at compared to some of the best in the world.”
