Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-QuickStep) remains in the hunt for overall victory at the Vuelta a San Juan after the race jury decided to revise the results of stage 1 and award the Belgian and his fellow crash victims the same time as the front group. 

Evenepoel, Oscar Sevilla (Team Medellin), and Eduardo Sepulveda (Movistar) were among the riders to lose time following a mass crash with 3.4km of Sunday’s opening leg to San Juan remaining.
