Anacona wins Vuelta a San Juan

Anacona wins Vuelta a San Juan

Colombian allrounder from Movistar Team takes overall classification in Argentina.

Winner Anacona took overall honours in the 37th Vuelta a San Juan, following his most brilliant week since he became a pro cyclist. The rider from Team Movistar, again supported by a solid Blue squad -with Jorge Arcas, Carlos Barbero and Eduardo Sepúlveda again at the front of the bunch from the start, plus Richard Carapaz and Nairo Quintana as race-end guides, completed the stage tucked into a complete peloton fighting for the sprint, with Sam Bennett ultimately grabbing the stage victory.

Anacona then stepped onto the final podium alongside Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe, second overall, and Óscar Sevilla, winner of the 2018 race and now 3rd behind two WorldTour contenders. Movistar also won the team prize. Sunday's final jersey marks Winner's fourth UCI win, following an amateur success at the GiroBio (2011) and stage nine of the 2014 Vuelta a España before Friday's Alto Colorado victory. Anacona's triumph also brings the third overall victory to the Movistar Team in Argentina, following two GC wins by the Quintana brothers in the Tour de San Luis (2014 and 2016).
