  Vuelta a España: 6 key stages where the race was won Cyclingnews highlights the key moments of Primoz Roglic's victoryWhile the Giro and Tour's last-minute cliffhangers effectively developed into a two-way duel, the Vuelta had even more options on the table right the way through to the finish in Madrid.

The 44-year-old Sevilla clawed back 22 seconds of a nearly minute deficit to Camargo in Thursday's individual time trial then tacked on another nine in bonus seconds on Saturday's penultimate stage. But Camargo wisely marked Sevilla into the closing kilometres of the final stage and the 22-year-old finished on the same time, 12 seconds behind stage winner Salvador Moreno (EBSA) to seal a history victory.

Camargo is the latest talent to come out of the Boyaca region, the same department that has produced stars like Nairo Quintana and Miguel Ángel López in recent years.

He finished just outside of the top 10 in February in the Tour Colombia 2.1 and won the U23 Vuelta a Colombia three weeks ago before adding the elite title to his palmares.

Normally a UCI 2.2-ranked stage race, this year's Vuelta a Colombia was run as a national level event because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Sevilla won the race three times in a row in 2013, 2014 and 2015 after relocating to Colombia. His illustrious career in Europe ended with him being implicated in Operacion Puerto but he found love, happiness and success racing in his new country.

He was declared winner of the 2018 Vuelta a San Juan after Gonzalo Najar was disqualified for doping. In February, he finished third overall behind Remco Evenepoel in the Vuelta a San Juan after renewing with Team Medellin for the 2020 season.

Danish riders Hansen and Carbel drop from WorldTour level as contracts not renewed .
Jesper Hansen out of contract at Cofidis and Michael Carbel ready to end pro career after leaving NTTBack in March, at the start of the coronavirus crisis, Hansen said that he hoped to race as much as possible in order to try to earn himself a contract renewal with Cofidis for 2021. But despite a racing programme in the second half of the season that included the Tour de Pologne, Il Lombardia and the Giro d'Italia – with the 30-year-old climber performing well at all three races – a contract extension was not forthcoming, and the French WorldTour team sent out a tweet on Sunday, thanking Hansen for his past two seasons at the team and wishing him luck for the future.
