San Juan: Richeze Rips It!

PeloPic: The stage began with an hour’s delay so the organiser could clean the debris along the course left by a strong overnight storm.

Due to the road conditions there was a serious crash brining down Quick-Step Floors stage 1 winner, Fernando Gaviria, who was taken to hospital, two other riders were also forced to retire form the race.

The race was neutralized

Most of the day a group of six escapees were at the front of the race. Their gap was well under control as Bora-Hansgrohe and Quick-Step Floors were working in the bunch early enough to avoid any surprises. When the pace was raised in the peloton, the breakaway riders were not able to remain their advantage and shortly after they were reeled in. The crash that took out Fernando Gaviria 45 kilometers from the finish in Villa San Agustin, forced a split in the bunch.

At the end of the day, Argentine cyclist Maximiliano Richeze (Quick-Step Floors) won the stage ahead of Italians Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek-Segafredo) and Matteo Pelucchi (Bora-Hansgrohe). Filippo Ganna (UAE Team Emirates) maintained his overall lead ahead of Rafal Majka and Oscar Sevilla.
