Finally he got there

Relief, at last. Just when it appeared he’d run out of chances, and ideas, Philippe Gilbert has finally managed to win his first race in the World Champion’s rainbow jersey… less than a month before he has to give it back in Tuscany (unless, of course he goes back to back).

It was some finish at the Vuelta overnight. Sky’s Edvald Haagen Daaz burst away from the bunch and looked home for all money with 300m to go. But this Belgian is one tough hombre and chased him down to nail the Norwegian on the line.

Good stuff.
