The final stage of the Vuelta a San Juan came down to the expected bunch sprint as Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek-Segafredo) out-sprinted Maximiliano Richeze (Quick-Step Floors) as local rider Gonzalo Najar (S.E.P. de San Juan) crossed the line in the main field to confirm his overall victory.

Coming into the final stage with a lead of nearly a minute over Oscar Sevilla (Medellin-Inder), Najar's overall victory was never realistically going to be threatened, but with the final stage being contested on a largely flat circuit around the city of San Juan, there was plenty for the sprinters still to play for.
