Vuelta a Espana
Stage 10: Valencia to Castellon - Stage Details

ORICA-GreenEDGE has placed Jens Keukeleire and Daryl Impey in the top ten on stage ten of the Vuelta a Espana, finishing in seventh and eighth respectively.

After a busy start to the Tour, the Australian outfit took a more conservative approach to the final stage before the first rest day, taking a back seat in the chase after have Australian Cameron Meyer in an early break.

As Giant-Alepcin and Team Movistar forced the race into a bunch kick, Keukeleire and Impey worked together to take advantage of a depleted sprint pool.

“It was meant to be pretty easy but there was a bit of a cross wind and stress so the boys rode like a general classification day,” sport director Neil Stephens said.  “There was a bit of work required in the middle of the bunch to make sure we were well placed.”
