Dayer Quintana (Movistar) wrapped up his first career stage race win at the Tour de San Luis after finishing safely in the pack on a final stage won by Jakub Mareczko.

Quintana took the leader's green jersey after stage six, where he finished third behind Astana's Miguel Angel Lopez and his own brother Nairo.

In the stage seven finale, Etixx-Quick Step and Tinkoff worked hard on the front of the peloton in the final kilometres for Maximiliano Richeze and Peter Sagan respectively.

But Richeze faded fast after hitting the front in the sprint, allowing Mareczko and teammate Elia Viviani to battle it out for the win.

Sagan crossed the line in fourth place having never really challenged for the win, with Jason Lowndes (Drapac) completing the podium.
