After a dramatic final day in the mountains at the Vuelta a Espana, Fabio Aru (Astana) rode into Madrid with the red jersey on his back as he claimed his first Grand Tour title. Sunday’s short stage into the heart of the Spanish capital was a day of celebration for the Italian and his Astana teammates.

Aru took red on the penultimate stage after previous race leader Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) cracked. With a comfortable lead over second place Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha), Aru was able to enjoy the day.

Follow Aru and his Astana team on-board as they ride to overall victory during stages 20 and 21.
