Dan Martin has had to content himself with third place for the second consecutive stage of the Vuelta Espana. 

Today’s second stage was won by Movistar’s Marc Soler, with Primoz Roglic (Team Jumbo Visma) second.

Martin’s finish sees him move up to second on general classification, and he’s also taken the green points jersey.

"I’m very happy because we're racing on home roads," Soler said after his victory.

"This was a stage we really wanted to win and we’d studied the roads this week. This is my first win in a Grand Tour and I’m very happy about that.

""It pays us back for all the hard work done during what has been a very difficult year. It’s great for all the team and I can only thank them for their support.

"We knew the climb and Carlos Verona set a high pace. Then I kept going as fast as I could. If I got caught I knew that Alejandro could perhaps win. But I stayed out front and made it to the finish."

Roglic praised Movistart's team effort, saying, "We know they are really strong, we could feel it today. They did great racing.

"Again at the end nice result - it was a hard day, nervous because of the wind and a hard climb at the end. But our team did again a good job controlling the whole day and they keep me in the right position. in the climb it was a hard pace. Soler went away - he deserved to win."
