Lotto-Soudal Cycling Team (Spain) - Press Release: Lotto Soudal’s Tim Wellens claimed his second win of this year’s Tour of Spain in stage 14 from Lugo to Ourense (Galicia). In an uphill sprint, after a climb of almost two kilometers, Wellens won, from a small group, ahead of Michael Woods and Zdeněk Štybar. All three riders were part of a break of seven riders that was formed after some 40 km. With three third category climbs and rolling terrain throughout this was the ideal day for a break's survival.
"The goal of team Lotto Soudal was to win at least one stage in La Vuelta. After my first win in Sabiñánigo in stage 5 we hoped to win another one. I knew today was a stage that suits me very well. I was looking forward to this stage for a long time. One thing is to look forward to a stage, but another thing is to be in the right breakaway and have the legs to finish it off. Today everything went according to plan”, said Tim Wellens.
