Our fellow countryman Jelle Wallays has Lotto-Soudal a victory delivered in the Tour of San Juan. Wallays survived the early flight of 17 riders and came after 152,6 kilometers of impressive solo across the finish line in San Juan. Iljo Keisse was fourth in a group two seconds of Wallays finished.
“It was really Wallays,” was the first reaction of the dagwinnaar. As another doubt, stamp i have something harder.” Wallays escaped from the breakaway with a few kilometres to go and could be a chasing group with among others, Iljo Keisse, but just hold off. For Wallays is the first profzege in almost two years. The Argentinian Gonzalo Najar lost eleven seconds on the first pursuer, Oscar Sevilla, but remains the leader and will be without any accidents tomorrow the gc to write his name.
