Vuelta a Andalucia
Wout Poels in the last stage of Vuelta a Andalucia, hoping for an easy day. German Lennard Kämna launched an attack on the last climb and no one from the breakaway could follow him.
Chaos erupted in the last 20 kilometres, with Wout Poels going solo with Alexey Lutsenko, surprisingly winning the two up sprint after Lutsenko made some decisions that will surely upset his Astana teammate Miguel Angel Lopez.

Young Italian Alessandro Covi attacked early once again on the finish climb in Vuelta a Andalucia stage 2, taking his second professional victory of the young season.
The big teams in the peloton did not seem to care about the 8-man group for almost the entirety of the stage, granting them a monstrous lead of at least 7 minutes minutes that opened an opportunity for a win for the pro-conti teams represented in the breakaway. The fastest from the break was 23-year-old Belgian talent Rune Herregodts, who won his second consecutive race after ending the 2021 season with a win at Ronde van Drenthe.
