Jakob Fuglsang has continued a dream start of the season for Astana with the overall victory of the Vuelta a Andalucia Ruta del Sol. Ion Izagirre stepped on the second position of the final podium and Pello Bilbao was fourth in the General Classification.

This is the sixth overall win of the team so far in 2019 after the victories in the Vuelta a la Comunitat Valenciana of Ion Izagirre, in the Vuelta a Murcia of Luis Leon Sanchez, in the Tour Colombia of Miguel Angel Lopez, in the Tour de la Provence of Gorka Izagirre and of Alexey Lutsenko in the Tour of Oman.

"I am very happy with my win," Fuglsang commented at the end of the stage. "Our team enjoys a very nice moment now at the start of the season and I am happy to bring the team the 6th GC victory in a row. I was able to come in a good shape to the start of the year and I felt very well during this week.

"But, also, I can say that this is the team’s win, the team’s success. Today’s victory brings me additional confidence in myself and proves I worked in a right direction during the winter. We are still in the early period of the season and all the big goals are still lying ahead. But, we are on the right way to it."

The Danish rider crossed the finish line of the Spanish race with the peloton and maintained the GC lead he got in the fourth stage of the race. The last day of the competition was won by Mitchelton-Scott's Matteo Trentin.
