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.
