Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo)  won stage 16 of the 2022 Vuelta a España in a hectic five-man sprint that saw Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) crash after leading the riders into the last 500m of the stage.

It was Pederson’s second stage win of the race, with Pascal Ackermann (UAE-Emirates), Danny van Poppel (BORA-Hangrohe) and Fred Wright  (Bahrain Victorious) finishing closely behind him.
