Vuelta a España: Fabio Jakobsen Takes the Glory in Madrid

Vuelta a España: Fabio Jakobsen Takes the Glory in Madrid

Deceuninck – Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team (Spain) - Press Release: The Grand Tour season came to a conclusion on Sunday, when our team celebrated its 62nd victory of the year and another memorable race.

For the fourth consecutive year, Deceuninck – Quick-Step came out of the Vuelta a España as the most successful team. After four stage wins in 2016, six in 2017 and four again last season, the Wolfpack ended up winning five this time, including a masterpiece which from now on should have a prominent place in cycling manuals whenever ripping the peloton apart in the crosswinds is taught.

The icing on the cake was put by Fabio Jakobsen in the Spanish capital, after a textbook lead-out of his teammates, who controlled the last kilometers with the likes of Eros Capecchi, Tim Declercq, Philippe Gilbert, Rémi Cavagna, Zdenek Stybar and Maximiliano Richeze, the latter having the Dutch Champion tucked on his wheel. With 150 meters remaining, the 23-year-old Grand Tour debutant was in a perfect slot and launched the sprint down the middle of the road, emerging as the fastest from the bunch and sealing the deal on the line, half a bike length ahead of Sam Bennett (Bora-hansgrohe), who came runner-up.
