Vuelta Ciclista a Rioja podium history | Vuelta a Rioja map | Start list | 2014 edition | 2016 edition

Vareia - Logroño, 166.3 km

Caleb Ewan wins the 2015 Vuelta a Rioja

Caleb Ewen gets a clean win at the 2015 Vuelta a Rioja

The Race: By the 73rd kilometer seven riders had escaped, but their freedom was cut short after the Murias-Taldea team went to the front and chased them down with 50 kilometers remaining.

Immediately Alejandro Valverde attacked, taking another rider with him, but again, the Orica-GreenEdge team went to the front, and chased him down and with 23 kilometers yet to race, the escape was neutralized. From there Orica-GreenEdge kept things together and then set things up for the sprint, which worked perfectly for them. Orica riders Caleb Ewen and Daryl Impey gave the team the first two places.

Ewen is a speedy guy. This is his fifth win this season.

Winner's average speed: 42.870 km/hr
