David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ) won stage 17 of the Vuelta a Espana, taking the win ahead of Gino Mader (NTT Pro Cycling). The penultimate stage of the Vuelta a Espana saw a return to La Covatilla, a climb well-known to our team as in 2018, it was where Ben King took the 2nd of his two Vuelta a Espana stage wins. The stage started in pretty grim conditions, cold and wet, and this saw a large breakaway group of 33 riders going clear. NTT Pro Cycling got both Stefan de Bod and Mader into that front group.

Vuelta a Espana: Stage 16 Valgren nets another top 10

Magnus Cort Nielsen (EF Education First) sprinted to the Vuelta a Espana stage 16 victory, winning from a reduced group in Ciudad Rodrigo. Stage 16 of the Vuelta a Espana saw a nervy bunch take to the start, as crosswinds seemed to be on everyone’s mind today. However, the wind never really picked up enough to affect the racing as expected and 6 riders would form the break of the day.

NTT Pro Cycling stage 15: Janse van Rensburg sprints to 6th place

Jasper Philipsen (UAE Emirates) won stage 15 of the Vuelta a Espana in an uphill sprint finish. Stage 15 of the Vuelta a Espana was the longest of the race at 231km in length. The day was lengthened further due to the fact there was a prevailing headwind throughout the stage. With over 4000m of climbing but with no climbs categorised higher than cat 3, it seemed today would be another good chance for the breakaway. Every NTT Pro Cycling rider got involved in trying to make the break, but eventually when a group of 13 riders got up the road, we had missed theRead More →

Tim Wellens (Lotto-Soudal) won stage 14 of the Vuelta a Espana, beating his 6 other breakaway companions to take the victory in Ourense. Stage 14 of the Vuelta a Espana was another stage that, on paper, had breakaway written all over it. With a number of teams not having won anything this grand tour yet, the fight for the break was once again very intense. Gino Mader, Reinardt Janse van Rensburg and Carlos Barbero were all part of moves that went clear from the peloton but unfortunately, in the end the move that went clear did so without any NTT Pro Cycling presence.

Vuelta a Espana stage 13: Mader 20th in TT of two parts

Primoz Roglic (Team Jumbo-Visma) won the stage 13 ITT of the Vuelta a Espana, and moved back into the overall race lead. The stage 13 La Vuelta individual time trial was a race of two parts. Firstly a mostly flat 32km was followed by a final 1,8km incredibly steep climb. With gradients reaching 30%, nearly every rider in the race opted for bike change at the bottom of the climb. All NTT Pro Cycling riders opted to swap their time trial bikes for road bikes at the bottom of the climb, without issue. Gino Mader was our fastest rider on the day as he stoppedRead More →
