La Vuelta a España 2012 – Stage 5: Logroño – Logroño 168.0 km



Argos’s John Degenkolb was ‘speechless’ about his second stage win in Logroño; but did manage to say that the last K was crazy fast and his team did a great job for him – that sounds about right.

I think his last lead out man was Koen De Kort – who delivered his German team mate perfectly.

It looked like just maybe The Shack’s Daniele Bennati might get it, but he went early and once Degenkolb locked on, it was unlikely the Italian could hold it.

The ‘new wave’ of sprinters were to the fore – as well as Degenkolb, Lotto-Belisol’s Gianni Meersman was third; FDJ’s French champion Nacer Bouhanni fourth and Liquigas flyer Elia Viviani fifth.
