Juan Ayuso opened his professional win tally today with victory at the Circuito de Getxo in Bilbao, Spain.
The Spaniard played his cards well , arriving in a select group of four riders who battled it out on the uphill kick into to Getxo.
Andrea Piccolo (Drone Hopper -Androni) and Wilco Keldermann (Bora-Hansgrohe) rounded out the podium.
The win marks the 36th triumph of the season for the Emirati squad and the first for the promising Juan Ayuso.
Ayuso: “I am very happy and almost I can’t believe it. I thank the team that helped me and trusted me. On the penultimate climb I got a puncture and couldn’t chase the two fugitives, but, as soon as I could, I bridged the gap I wanted this victory. In the final I gave everything and I finally managed to get this first victory as a professional. I couldn’t be happier”.
