STAGE 8: Julian Alaphilippe (Quick-Step Floors) back from the wilderness to take long sought win

Xorret de Catí, Saturday, August 26th – After spending most of the season on the sideline, Julian Alaphilippe (Quick-Step Floors) bounced back with a prestigious stage victory on stage 8 of La Vuelta 2017.

The French promise whose last major victory was a stage of 2017 Paris-Nice made the most of a demanding finish on the way to Xorret de Cati, outpacing his breakaway companions Jan Polanc (UAE Team Emirates) and Rafal Majka (Bora-Hansgrohe) to claim his first Grand Tour victory and bring his team a third win already at La Vuelta 2017.

Chris Froome (Team Sky) tightened his grip on the red jersey as Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) was the only one able to follow him on the last section. The Sky rider increased his lead to 28" over Estaban Chaves (Orica Scott)
