Jack Haig beat race leader Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) and Mikel Landa (Bahrain-McLaren) in a sprint finish to take victory on the queen stage of the Ruta del Sol.

The Mitchelton-Scott rider crested the summit of the category one Alto del Purche, which reached gradients of over 10 per cent, alongside Fuglsang and Landa, before biding his time and proving to have the freshest legs of the trio in the finishing straight.

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.
