Soler wins the queen stage in Route du Sud

Free Pass

Marc Soler (Movistar) took his first professional victory in impressive fashion when he soloed to the top of the Col du Curaduque in the Route du Sud queen stage.

Despite spending the day in the early break and riding on the front for Nairo Quintana, he had enough left to make a late attack and as Quintana marked the rivals from behind, he held off his chasers to win the stage. Quintana beat Hugh Carthy (Caja Rural) in the sprint for second and so retained the overall lead, with Soler moving into second place.
