Our photograher Jojo Harper was in Madrid, the end point of the 3rd Grand Tour of the season, la Vuelta a Espańa. Ilnur Zakarin could not repeat his 2017 performance when he finished 3rd Overall. A 20th place in GC was the result of badly started Vuelta with a crash in stage 2. Ilnur suffered from a shoulder injury, but he went on and tried to go for stage wins. Closest to a win was Jhonatan Restrepo who finished 2nd in Ribeira Sacra. The season is not over yet, but now already the team is looking forward to 2019.
