ORICA-BikeExchange finish Vuelta with four stage wins and third overall

 
     
 

The Vuelta a Espana concluded on Sunday evening with ORICA-BikeExchange walking away with an impressive four stage wins and third overall with Esteban Chaves.

Dane Magnus Cort put the icing on the cake for the Australian outfit by claiming the final stage sprint in Madrid, giving the 23-year-old his second stage victory in what was his debut Grand Tour.

Chaves’ bold, long-range attack on yesterday’s penultimate stage saw the 26-year-old return to third position overall after he lost it in the individual time trial to Alberto Contador (Tinkoff) the day prior.

It’s the second Grand Tour podium this season for Chaves and the Australian outfit, following his second place at the Giro d’Italia in May. Briton Simon Yates also finished sixth overall to give ORICA-BikeExchange two riders in the top ten.

“The objective this year for me and the team was to try to do two big tours strongly on the general classification and I think we did it,” Chaves said after the podium.

Multiple Tour Down Under stage winner Caleb Ewan sprinted brilliantly to victory on the eighth and final stage of the Tour of Britain today, blowing away the bunch to win by at least two clear bike lengths.

A breakaway of four was away for 90kilometres of the race before being caught with ten kilometres to go as the peloton began to organise itself for the sprint.

The 22-year-old was well positioned by his ORICA-BikeExchangeteammates going into the finale and was able to maintain his speed after a blistering early acceleration.

“I am super happy,” said Ewan at the finish. “It's great to finally get the win after coming close a couple of times earlier in the race, it all worked out perfectly today.”
