It was a rest day in San Juan so we’re racing around to catch up on Race Torquay, Challenge Mallorca, and Colombian #BatChamps
The first WorldTour stage race of the year kicked off in fine style with victory for Sam Bennett and his oh-so-slick Deceuninck-Quickstep team. The Irish champion pipped Jasper Philippsen (UAE Team-Emirates) with Erik Baska (BORA-hansgrohe) rounding out the podium.
Stage 14 of the 2019 Vuelta was without incident for 187 of its 188 kilometres. Then, a huge crash under the flamme rouge caused chaos. With only a handful of sprinters left, Tosh Van Der Sande of Lotto-Soudal tried to launch a long-range attack but Sam Bennett of Bora-hansgrohe easily caught and passed him to take the win.
