It finally came – Enric Mas’ first victory for the Movistar Team, a success long deserved with his consistency over the biggest stage races in the world, arrived on Wednesday as he took honours in the Queen stage of the 2021 Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana 2021, from Torrent to Dos Aguas.
Reaction from Enric Mas:
“This victory really feels great – my first win with these colours! I’m super proud of how the team has worked today; they all really were on top of their game today, just like over the whole Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, always Trying to give their best. We’ve been able to finish this off and it’s been in great part because of them.
We played both cards, not just mine – together with Nelson, we took all chances we could, and he did an awesome job, also trying to stay clear of the front group. He wasn’t lucky enough to escape, and in the end it was up to me to create that decisive gap after his earlier moves.
It’s a short, flat TT Saturday – we’ll have to give our best; being honest, it doesn’t suit me that well, but I’m really motivated to try and keep the jersey.”
