Ayuso makes history with podium at Vuelta España as Molano triumphs

After three weeks of high emotion UAE Team Emirates and 19 year-old Juan Ayuso finally were allowed to celebrate as the curtain came down on an intense but successful month of racing. The final stage to Madrid ended in style with Sebastian Molano proving the strongest of all having being delivered to the line perfectly, with Pascal Ackermann following close in his wheel for 3rd place. The win marks Molano’s first at World Tour level and the 41st victory of the year for UAE Team Emirates.
Ayuso, in his debut Grand Tour, took 3rd place overall on the podium behind his compatriot Enric Mas (Movistar) and overall race winner Remco Evenepoel (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl). In the process he comes the youngest ever podium finisher at La Vuelta España and the second ever youngest podium finisher in the history of any Grand Tour.
