Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) finally had his day at the Vuelta a España as he powered to victory on stage 13 in Montilla.

As the peloton flew towards the slightly uphill finish in Andalusia, Trek-Segafredo had assembled their men perfectly with the aim of setting up the Danish rider. Jumbo-Visma had Primož Roglič primed and ready to pounce to spoil the party for Pedersen, but it would be Pascal Ackermann (UAE Team Emirates) who would be the first man to launch a final kick for the line.
