Cort wins opening stage of Gran Camino


Magnus Cort was the fastest in Vigo to take victory on the opening stage of the inaugural Gran Camino.

The Dane outsprinted Giovanni Lonardi (Eolo-Kometa) and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) on the flat finish to the 165-kilometre stage in Galicia.

“I feel amazing,” Cort said after the finish. “A win couldn’t’ be any better for me and the team. It’s a nice area to race in. I’ve been here before in the Vuelta. Some beautiful roads and for me some nice hills, not too steep and I can still come over and sprint at the end. It suits me very well.
