Remains of breakaway steal the show on last stage in Asturias

30 April 2023

Team Novo Nordisk enjoyed a positive three days of racing at the Vuelta Asturias that came to a close with an explosive finale in Oviedo with the breakaway holding off the chasers to take the final stage win. 

Sports director Gennady Mikhaylov:

“We’ve had a really good three days here in Asturias and the guys worked hard to achieve our goals, with Jan’s breakaway on stage two a highlight and a good sign that he’s getting back into form and developing. 

“Todays stage was another tough one and explosive in the final third with the second category Tenebreo climb coming close to the finish and the main bunch split behind the breakaway. There was a dramatic chase by the leaders towards the end, but we were further back and the last guy standing from the breakaway ended up taking the stage.”

Andrea Peron:

“It’s definitely good to be back racing, but it’s been a very tough three days racing. These climbs aren’t for a sprinter like me, but the team did a good job of working for each other and we’re looking ahead to the Tour de Hongrie coming up next and trying to repeat our good performances of recent years there.”
