Bora-hansgrohe

Davide Formolo closed a successful week for Bora-hansgrohe with his victory at the last stage of the Volta a Catalunya. The Italian crossed the finish line on his own in Barcelona.

Formolo was part of the escape group on the last day of the Spanish race and he managed to keep a gap in front by himself that gave him the win. Bora-hansgrohe took two victories at the race, several top-five positions and Maximilian Schachmann and Gregor Mühlberger could show their good shape as well.

"I can't describe how happy I am," said Formolo at the finish line. "The victory means a lot to me. I went into today's stage with the goal to be in the breakaway and to try from there to win the stage.

"On the local laps I thought, now or never, so I just attacked. I pulled so hard, but I knew with 8 km to go that I could make it. The team was great this week, we achieved a lot at this Volta a Catalunya. Now it is time to go home, rest and look forward to the next races."
