Kruijswijk moves up to fifth place in general classification in final stage Catalunya

Steven Kruijswijk has moved up a place in the last stage of the Volta a Catalunya. The rider from Team Jumbo-Visma closed the ten seconds gap on Daniel Martin and finished the race fifth.

The stage started relatively calm. But, later, on the local circuit in Barcelona, there were a lot of attacks by riders from the general classification. Kruijswijk also attacked, but he wasn’t able to escape. In the end, early attacker Davide Formolo managed to stay away and finished before the group of favourites. Kruijswijk crossed the finish line ninth.

"Becoming fifth in this field is a good result"

“The last day is always hard here”, Kruijswijk said. “It was important that we stayed focused all day. I felt good and I was able to stay in a good position in front. Becoming fifth in this field is a good result.”
