‘You’d rather start that attack a few kilometers later’: Evenboul and Simmons trapped by the peloton shortly before the finish, Welsford win again | Cycling

seaweedTwo by Two for Sam Wellsford. The Australian – just like yesterday – won the sprint at the Tour of San Juan. Fabio Jacobsen finished second and Giacomo Nizzolo third. Remco Evenepoel tried to surprise the peloton with American Quinn Simmons, but their late attack ended three kilometers from the finish.

The final chord of the San Juan Tour declared itself a glorious standard. Seven courses of 16 kilometers each, the final stage is 112 kilometers. Four fugitives – including our compatriot Reynders – colorized the journey. Gradually fell as a pawn, until Vasek and Saljiro were left.

The duo was eaten over 10km from the finish, after which Remco Evenepoel and American Simmons took off. The duo made a 30-second lead in short order. Although it wasn’t enough to fend off an oncoming platoon.

We have another set of sprints. Welsford – just like yesterday – came out on top. Jakobsen was boxed in for a long time, then got out, but was unable to get past the Australian who had booked two by two. Nizzolo finished in third place. Miguel Angel Lopez’s overall victory was no longer in jeopardy.

Remco Evenepoel: “If Simmons is gone, you have to come with you”

Suddenly there was Remco Evenpoel. Going into the final round, the world champion went with Simmons. Perhaps unexpectedly, but that was the plan. Maybe not too early. I would have preferred attacking 4 or 5 kilometers from the finish, but if Simmons goes, you have to be with them. I knew it was going to be very difficult to stay ahead anyway.” How does Evenpoel look back at the Tour of San Juan? “I’m fine on schedule. I felt like I was getting better every day. Now I’m back in Belgium for a few days before I go to Calpe again. In Belgium it will be a bit calmer after three weeks with many hours of training.”
