Stybar outfoxes sprinters to win stage 6 of Vuelta a San Juan

Zdenek Stybar (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) attacked from the pack with 500 meters to go to deny the sprinters in stage 6 of Vuelta a San Juan.

The Czech rider held off the late chase of Sebastian Molano (UAE Team Emirates) and Rudy Barbier (Israel Start-Up Nation), who took second and third place.

“I had a free role today so I could try to jump in the last kilometre, but that could also help to make a good position for Alvaro [Hodeg], so it was a win-win situation,” Stybar said afterwards. “We did some training here last week. We were having fun here with the guys but we also tried in the last km to make a big attack. So today in the team meeting we decided that I’d try.”

Remco Evenepoel enjoyed a quiet day in the saddle and is now on the verge of wrapping up his second GC victory of professional career.

“We are glad our plan paid off and we scored another victory. San Juan has been a good race for us so far and we look forward to Sunday, when we hope to bring it home and also to help Alvaro get in the mix for what would be a perfect conclusion.”
