A rather sleepy opening road stage of the Vuelta a España ended with a frantic bunch sprint finish that featured a couple of crashes and ended with Etixx-QuickStep's Gianni Meersman proving himself quickest of the pack, ahead of Bora-Argon 18's Michael Schwarzmann and Magnus Cort of Orica-BikeExchange.

Meersman's teammates bided their time very well coming into a tricky finish, Yves Lampaert and Zdenek Stybar hitting the front just 500 metres from the line. Sitting on the left-hand side of the road barrelling into the sweeping left-hander up to the finish, they were perfectly placed to set up Meersman, who jumped out of their slipstream and never looked likely to be beaten.
