Fabio Jakobsen took his second sprint victory at the Vuelta a España on stage eight, powering through in the rush to the line to deny DSM's Alberto Dainese and Alpecin-Fenix's Jasper Philipsen, who had to settle for second and third.

Bora-Hansgrohe's Jordi Meeus and UAE Team Emirates' Juan Sebastián Molano rounded out the top five as Arnaud Démare and Michael Matthews could only manage seventh and eighth.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
