Stage 18 of the Vuelta a España saw the contenders for the general classification hide in the peloton and leave the stress to the sprint teams.

The Dane Magnus Cort Nielsen ghosted to the front of the scrum to claim the third stage win for the Australian WorldTour team in this edition of the Vuelta a España.

Colombian Nairo Quintana (Movistar) finished safely in the peloton and cruised into Gandia retaining his 3:37 race lead over Christopher Froome.

Friday is a key day in the race a 37km individual time trial and a chance for Froome to pull some time back ahead of Saturday’s final mountain stage and Sunday’s finish in Madrid.
