Fantastic Herrada: double and general in Luxembourg

The Spanish of Cofidis had to defend his leadership in the last stage and he did it in a big way: also winning in the final arrival in Luxembourg.

Jesús Herrada points to the list of Spaniards who arrive wanting to shine at the Tour de France. The cyclist of the Cofidis became the first Spanish to win the Tour of Luxembourg in its 79 disputed editions. Mota del Cuervo has done it in a big way. He won on Saturday in the demanding arrival of Diekirch and holstered the leadership he had to defend this Sunday in the final day, which ended with a hard circuit with ramps to 8.6%. el Castilian-Manchego not only achieved it but he did it to the champion, conquering also this last stage raising the arms of amarillo.

Tras a day where Sergio Rodríguez (Murias) and Delio Fernández (Delko) entered the day's escape , formed by eight cyclists, the second was left alone in the last kilometer, but the group where the favorites marched, commanded by the Roompot. The Dutch team not only thought about the stage, but that their runner Lammertink launched his attack to dethrone Herrada in the general, however it was the leader himself who started to re-impose and certify his dominance in the race. Herrada, who is destined to be the great trick of the Cofidis in the mountain of the Tour, will be planted in the big one with four victories in 2019: the Ses Salines de Mallorca trophy and two stages and general of this Luxembourg Tour that he has conquered for the cycling Spanish.
