The final stage, ended with the bunch sprint, did not introduce any changes in the general classification of the race. Astana Proteam leader Jakob Fuglsang took 6th place in overall classification of the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana which was won by Colombian Nairo Quintana.
- I think, we’ve got from this race everything we planned before start. For the riders, it was the very first race of the year, so the main thing was to enter in the season, to find the rhythm. Of course, we tried to reach a good result and Jakob was able to perform well in the general classification. The whole race became harder than we might expect both, because of the route and weather conditions. But, our team did it well. So, we have a long and hard season ahead and the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana became a very nice beginning for our team, - explained sports director Dmitri Sedoun.
