The honor of the virtual cyclist in Pico Villuercas

The Australian cyclist from Alpecin makes his debut in La Vuelta and astonished in Villuercas: third after suffering a hard fall with his team's car.


Jay Vine (Townsville, Australia, 26 years old) starred in one of the great stories of the 14th stage. The Alpecin, recently renovated, was third after Bardet and Herrada, and all after overcoming a dangerous fall that did not prevent him from being in the fight until the end. He got out of the team car in the middle of a getaway for supplies and in a strange gesture, his bike went off and he hit a tremendous blow at high speed.

A danger that he did not have to deal with when he showed Alpecin that he could be a cyclist of the highest level. He is the first cyclist to enter the peloton since the Zwift Academy, the competition of the renowned cycling app that works with a trainer at home and that achieved so much fame during the pandemic. His numbers astonished the team's coaches, who recruited him to the squad. In La Vuelta he made his debut in a big one.

It was the way to access the professionalism of this rider who began on the MTB and, after arriving in 2020 at the Nero continental, he set out to reach the elite ... until the coronavirus stopped the competition. Virtual cycling helped him not to slow down his rapid progression until he was with the best.
