The EF Education–Nippo rider, who led a breakaway until 200 metres from the stage 11 finish on Wednesday, sprinted to victory after a gruellingly hot 175km route from Jaen to Cordoba in Southern Spain, holding off a late attack from Andrea Bagioli of Deceuninck–Quick-Step.
The victory represents a fifth career stage win at the Vuelta for the Dane.
