Two Stage wins, the most combative rider and winners of the Team Classification for Emirati squad
After three weeks of high emotion UAE Team Emirates and 19 year-old Juan Ayuso finally were allowed to celebrate as the curtain came down on an intense but successful month of racing.
The final stage to Madrid ended in style with Sebastian Molano proving the strongest of all having being delivered to the line perfectly, with Pascal Ackermann following close in his wheel for 3rd place.
The success of Ayuso was complimented by the strength of his team: Joao Almeida fought to 5th place in the final classification, underlining his Grand Tour pedigree.
Marc Soler revived the good times for Spanish cycling with an unforgettable solo victory on Stage 5 into Bilbao.
The whole team would then make the journey to the podium as the winners of the Team Classification : a welcome celebration for the work done throughout the race.
