Vuelta a España, Stage 19 Spain
14 September 2018
Thibaut Pinot's Vuelta motivation might not have stretched to challenging for the win, but he made up for it with two stage wins, at Lagos de Covadonga and here, on the Coll de la Rabassa. On Covadonga, he attacked the favourites' group, and took advantage of their reluctance to chase. And on the Rabassa, he followed Simon Yates's Vuelta-winning move, then outsprinted the Brit at the top. Even without targeting the GC, Pinot's results gave him sixth in Madrid.
