After two stages, Sam Bennett and Fabio Jakobsen tie for the best time overall.
The second stage of the competition had its starting point in the San Agustín square in Valle Fértil with the peloton that had to retrace 201.1 km to reach Jáchal, with a hot afternoon (36°) and a partial that promised possibilities of leaks constantly.
The process of the competition was similar to the first stage, with the stars of world cycling sheltering in the peloton, leaving a group of cyclists who were not close in the general classifier to wear and tear.
So it was that after the second Sprint goal, passing the Huaco bridge, the majority group began to move at a faster pace to shorten the distance, taking into account that they were an hour from the end.
Thus it was that the compact peloton faced the last 20 kilometers, all working so that no one escaped and once again enjoying a massive arrival that, logically, was defined in an electrifying final sprint that was left to the representative of the Netherlands, Fabio Jakobsen of the Soudal-Quick Step, escorted by the Colombian Fernando Gaviria of the Movistar Team and occupying the third step of the podium the Spanish Jon Abesturi Izaga, of the Trek-Segafredo team.
After two stages, the Vuelta de San Juan has two men with the same time, leading the general classification: Sam Bennett (BORA-Hansgrohe) and Fabio Jakobsen (Soudal-Quick Step), followed four seconds behind by Fernando Gaviria (Movistar Team ) and Michael Morkov (Soudal-Quick Step).
