Vuelta a Espana
Stage 21: Alcala de Henares > Madrid - Stage Details

The 2015 Vuelta a Espana came to a close in Madrid this evening, ORICA-GreenEDGE finishing with three stage wins, six days in the red leader’s jersey and a breakthrough fifth place overall.

Three weeks ago, the Australian outfit started the final Grand Tour of the season with hopes of a stage win and top ten overall. They did that and more.

“If someone said after the Giro d’Italia I would finish fifth in the Vuelta a Espana I wouldn’t believe,” Colombian Esteban Chaves said. “If they said I would win two stages, I wouldn’t believe. That I would wear the red jersey for six days, I wouldn’t believe.”
