Mikel Landa took his first victory for Team Movistar on Saturday in the Tirreno-Adriatico stage race, and says that he could consider moving from Team Sky a 'marginal gain'.

The Spaniard worked for Chris Froome for two years in Team Sky, in 2016 and 2017, and switched to Movistar for 2018 to have more leadership opportunities. On Saturday, he won the queen stage of Tirreno-Adriatico to Sassotetto, his first in Movistar's blue colours.
