Ruben Jimenez (2016-Burgos Castilla y Leon) was the first rider across the finish line on stage 2a of the Vuelta Asturias, but the victory went to Robert Förster (Unitedhealthcare) after the peloton had been sent the wrong direction by Spanish police with just 5km to go.

At that point, a four-man break featuring Carlos Oyarzun (Movistar), Juan José Oroz (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Jose Vicente Toribio (Andalucia Caja Granada) and Kirill Sveshniskov (Russian Federation) was 20 seconds clear of the bunch. Both the break and the chasing bunch were sent off course, and stopped for 15 minutes as confusion reigned.

Meanwhile, Jimenez, who had been dropped by the peloton, came past the same point and followed the correct route to the finish. The Spaniard was the first man across the line and looked to have snatched an implausible victory.

However, following protests from the peloton, they raced the final 5km, which resulted in a bunch sprint that saw Robert Förster edge out Sergey Shilov (Russian Federation) and Jimenez’s teammate Manuel Anton.

After pausing to deliberate, the race commissaires opted to award the victory to Förster, while Jimenez was placed in 113th and last place, albeit given the same time as the rest of the bunch.

Stefan Schumacher (Miche - Guerciotti) retains his overall lead ahead of Friday afternoon’s time trial.
