Stage success for Dan Martin on day 3 of the Vuelta Espana

Dan Martin's excellent start to the Vuelta Espana reached new heights on Thursday with victory on stage 3 to Vinuesa. 

After a cagey, uphill final few kilometres, the Team Israel Start-Up Nation rider broke for home to take the line ahead of Primoz Roglic (Team Jumbo Visma) and Richard Carapaz (Team Ineos Grenadiers).

Martin's 10-bonus seconds for the stage victory move him up to 2nd on general classification, five-seconds off Roglic.

Victory on stage 3 followed back-to-back 3rd place finishes for the 34-year old on this year's Vuelta.

It's his fourth Grand Tour stage win, and second in Spain after he won the mountainous stage 9 in the 2011 renewal.

An emotional Martin said afterwards, "I've come so close this year to winning. And I just really wanted to win a stage for this team as they’ve been so good to me. The sponsors have supported us all through Covid.

"The team was really motivated for the whole of lockdown because of that, to train harder. Obviously with the injury at the Tour we couldn’t win a stage there, but I was really determined to win a stage today.
"The team was amazing, every single of them played a part in the victory. It’s part for them, and part for my wife. This is the first time I’ve won a race since my kids were born, and it’s really special."
