Davide Vigano of Caja Rural won his first victory as a professional rider as he came in first on the second stage of Volta a Portugal. He won ahead of Filipe Cardoso (Efapel - Glassdrive) and Hugo Sabido (LA Aluminios - Antarte).


Team President Floren Esquisabel is truly happy with this win and sees it as a very good preparation for the upcoming GT of Spain, La Vuelta a España.


"The truth is that it is a great joy, the team has had a great feeling all year, better than years ago, but, however, it is costing us more to win. It is a great news that we are getting victories. It will certainly help us. The team is proving to be picking up a good point from here and I'm sure we will improve for the La Vuelta. Hopefully in La Vuelta we are able to make a showing of ourselves," he said.


Team Principal Jaime Garzón says it was a nervous stage, but the choice of riding for Vigano turned out to be the right choice.


"The stage was a little nervous. The rhythm changed multiple times during the stage. Luisle did a great job reducing the group. We chose Vigano and it turned out to be perfect. It is a joy to win, for the team and for him, Davide has shown he is in a good form. The team is very good and it was only the second stage. I’m sure we’ll get better day by day. The team is good and we’re looking forward. Now the hardest stage of the race comes and it gives options overall for Ruben, Marcos and Luisle. We’ll se how it goes on the stage ad what options we have after that. This victory is going to come in handy for the team and we will try to repeat it every day," he stated.


Davide Vigano, former Quickstep, Lampre, Sky and Leopard Trek rider, is euphoric about his first win as professional.


"I am very happy. It is my first win as a professional and it comes in a good race like Volta a Portugal. On the previous stage I was very close, but came in just short. I gave it everything I had. I wanted to try my sprint because I felt good and it went absolutely perfect. I want to thank the team for the good work they made all day. For me personally it gives great happiness, but the team is also happy. There are many stages left so we’ll see how it goes," he said to the Caja Rural webpage.
