German Tivani (ACA Virgen de Fatima) became a surprising winner of the six stage at the Vuelta a San Juan when he beat compatriots Daniel Diaz (Asociacon Civil Mardan) and Daniel Zamora (ACA Virgen de Fatima) in a 3-rider sprint.
Tivani escaped with his teammate Daniel Zamora, Dayer Quintana (Neri Sottoli – Selle Italia), and Daniel Diaz (Municipalidad de Pocito) and built up a lead of over five minute.
The WorldTour teams working for heavyweights such as Peter Sagan, Mark Cavendish and Fernando Gaviria looked to have the chase under control, however an unexpected tailwind late in the stage gave the break a glimmer of hope.
The escapees managed to arrive to the finish line 12 seconds ahead of them and Tivani showed to have the better legs for the final metres.
