The GPS helped Powless not to fall in San Sebastián

The American from EF, who debuted his professional record with the txapela, avoided problems on a curve in which Honoré and Rota fell.


Neilson Powless (EF Education-Nippo) achieved his first professional victory on Saturday, with a tremendous victory at the San Sebastián Classic after beating the rest of his fellow escapees. His team gave a tactical lesson by also including Simon Carr in the good cut. But the 24-year-old American found himself in the right place at the right time when Matej Mohoric (Bahrain) squeezed in the final descent… thanks to technology.

The Slovenian was forced to brake and release the cleats when Mikkel Honoré (Deceuninck-QuickStep) fell into the corner alongside Lorenzo Rota (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux). Powless slowed efficiently and was safe when Honoré crashed into a wall and Rota crashed: “I was looking at the map on my Garmin. I think the guys ahead of me were very focused on the race situation and not so much on the road. I could see a sharp turn approaching where they ended up colliding. I was delighted to be as fresh as possible by the end. ”
