Astana's Miguel Ángel López finished in the fifth position of the General Classification at the Vuelta a España and climbed to the final podium as the most aggressive rider of the race.

The Colombian showed once again his combative character throughout the Spanish grand tour and that was awarded on the last day. Although he dropped to the fifth overall position in the last mountain stage of the race, in the last day he received the award as the most combative rider of the entire competition.

"I am happy with the way I did this Vuelta a España," López explained. "I was able to come here in a good shape and during all three weeks, I was keeping on attacking. I did my best in all mountain stages as well as in time trials, so I have no regrets. Indeed, once again I had bad luck in a few decisive moments as at that stage in Andorra or two days ago in Toledo. But I just left it behind me, thinking only about good moments in this race.

"I had a great team around me, and I want to thank all Astana Pro Team for the trust and fantastic support during the race. As a team, I think, we made a great cycling show at La Vuelta and we can be proud of it. Of course, I would be much happier if I reach the final podium because I was ready for that result. Well, I am 5th in the general classification and I am looking at this like at a reason to come here again for a better result!"
