Vuelta a España
Stage 2: Ourense Thermal Capital to Baiona - Stage Details

Young Dane Magnus Cort sprinted to a strong third place for ORICA-BikeExchange in a hectic finale on stage two of the Vuelta a Espana today.

Excellent teamwork from ORICA-BikeExchange saw the breakaway caught over the last 20kilometres before a crash disrupted the finale with Cort sprinting brilliantly to third behind stage winner Gianni Meersman (Etixx-Quickstep).

“I was quite a long way back after the crash with two kilometres to go,” said Cort at the finish. “I lost Jens Keukeleire and had to start my sprint from a long way back and I was looking for a gap and the best line to the finish.”
