The Vuelta a San Juan in Argentina concluded today with a 112km mostly flat circuit in the town of San Juan.

In a hectic finale, S. Welsford sealed the win. While Sam Bennett was boxed in a bit, Danny van Poppel crossed the finish line in fifth. In the overall standings, Sergio Higuita was able to defend third and secured the first stage race podium of the season for BORA - hansgrohe.

From the Finish Line


“This week was super good for the team! We rode strong as a team, supported each other and had some nice results. I’m happy with this start to the season, taking home a podium here was definitely my goal. My next race will be the national championship in Colombia - I’m super motivated and hope keep the jersey for another year.“ Sergio Higuita 


“Of course we wanted more for the sprint today, but unfortunately in the finale Sam Bennett was boxed in a bit and another win was out of reach. Overall we are happy with the Vuelta a San Juan. A stage win and the podium in the overall keeps us optimistic for the upcoming tasks.” Bernhard Eisel, Sports Director
