Deceuninck-Quick-Step's Remi Cavagna has taken the biggest win of his career so far in the 19th stage of the Vuelta a España.

The Frenchman was part of the breakaway of the day and for this reason, was not affected at all by the crash of the day. At a bit more of 20 kilometres to go, Cavagna made a decisive move, creating a gap with the rest that he could keep until the end, even after having to tackle the cobbles of the last stretch.

"I always try and give everything, and today wasn't any different," said 24-year-old. "I am so, so happy because this is my first stage victory in a Grand Tour and it feels great! We've had a lot of beautiful moments here in the past weeks and today's result comes as a really nice reward, another one, for the Wolfpack, who has worked a lot and showed their dedication every single time."

"We've had so much success with Specialized at this Vuelta. I'm so happy to be a part of it! My Venge felt amazing today, it was so fast, even on the steep cobblestone climb in Toledo! It wasn't easy in the final, I suffered with the headwind and the road that continued to rise, but I believed in myself and kept going on my bike which allowed me to go full gas until the line
