Peter Sagan has won the sixth stage of the Volta a Catalunya on Saturday. The Slovak was supreme in the bunch sprint. Jumbo-Visma rider Jonas Vingegaard took the overall victory in the International Cycling Week Coppi-Bartali.
Sagan only booked his second victory in Catalonia in the past eighteen months. The three-time world champion, who won a stage in the Giro d’Italia last season, had a bike length ahead of the competition on the ascending finish street in Mataró.
Adam Yates’ jersey was not compromised. The Briton will defend a 45-second lead over his teammate Richie Porte in the traditional final stage in Barcelona on Sunday – with the climb of Montjuïc six times.
Vingegaard closes the successful week well
In Italy, Vingegaard closed a successful week with the win of the International Cycling Week Coppi-Bartali. The Dane’s leader’s jersey was no longer in danger in the final stage.
The 24-year-old Vingegaard was part of a late breakaway in the hilly fifth stage and finished second behind stage winner Mikkel Frølich Honoré.
The Jumbo-Visma rider has been in the lead in the general classification since his victory in the second stage. On Friday, the climber took his second stage victory.
Thanks to Vingegaard’s overall victory, Jumbo-Visma has so far reached ten victories this season. This puts the Dutch formation in second place on the list of teams with the most victories in 2021. Only the Belgian Deceuninck-Quick-Step won more races this year (thirteen).
