MTN-Qhubeka: It's a great moment for us as a team






Stage 10's finish was tailor made for John Degenkolb but for all the fantastic positioning from his team he ran out of room. Kristian Sbaragli stormed to the line first giving MTN-Qhubeka their second grand Tour stage win. MTN is pulling sponsorship at the end of the season and quite an amazing success story they've become - here's hoping a new sponsor will step in and take this talented team into next season.


I was feeling really well on the climb and just didn’t want to miss out again. I came so close a few times already in this La Vuelta, so I decided to wait until 200 meters to go before leaving it all out there. It’s sensational, something I never tasted before. This win is good for our team, but especially for Qhubeka and our 5.000 bikes campaign.

It’s unbelievable, a milestone performance for Kristian. He rode really well in the first couple of days, but felt disappointed after his near misses. Today he did everything right and managed to get the team’s second Grand-Tour stage win this year. It’s a great moment for us as a team.
