Cortina: "I finish this block of classics with a bad taste"

The Asturian, 25th in Flanders, will now take a break after failing to achieve any top-ten in seven one-day races contested.


The Spaniard Iván García Cortina (Movistar) finished with a "bad taste in his mouth the first part of the spring classics" after qualifying in 25th place in the Tour of Flanders, 2:15 minutes behind the winner, the Danish Kasper Asgreen. "I am finishing this first part of the classics. Today I have a bad taste in my mouth after having had a good race in Flanders, fighting for position and seeing that the body did not respond as it should" .

The Asturian cyclist will take a break after participating in the Omloop (11th place), Strade Bianche (29), Tirreno Adriatico, where he retired due to a fall, Milan San Remo (30), E3 Harelbeke (27), Gante Wevelgem ( 18), Across Flanders (27) and Tour of Flanders (25). "Now it's time to rest for a few days. Thanks for your encouragement and thanks to the team," says Cortina on social networks.
