Mitchelton-Scott (Spain) - Press Release: Bouncing back after yesterday’s disappointment, Australian climber Jack Haig showed his maturity and experience today, riding a tactically astute race to claim his first stage victory of the season on a hard penultimate stage in Ruta del Sol.
Riding with confidence after his consistent performances so far this season, Haig attacking over the top of the final first category climb with only two riders for company, race leader Jakob Fuglsang (Astana Pro Team) and second overall Mikel Landa (Bahrain-McLaren).
The trio battled it out for the stage victory into Granada, with Haig getting the better of the two in the sprint to take the victory and also regain valuable seconds to move himself up onto the podium with just one stage remaining.
