Lopez delivers knock-out blow in Volta a Catalunya

A bold double attack by Miguel Angel López (Astana) during the Volta a Catalunya’s second mountain top stage on Thursday rewarded the Colombian with more than a stage win and an opportunity to salute his soon-to-be-born son as he soloed triumphantly across the finish line. The 25-year-old's lone stage victory has also moved López into the overall lead, with the time bonuses and his margin placing him a solid 14 seconds ahead of Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott).
