Matteo Trentin (Mitchelton-Scott) took his first victory of the 2019 season, beating Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) and Ben Swift (Team Sky) to the line in Alicante on stage two of the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana.

The Italian positioned himself perfectly on a right-hand bend towards the short finishing straight, coming out of the corner in front of Bouhanni, giving the Frenchman no time to unleash his sprint and catch him before the line.
