First to the top of the climb to the Molina ski resort during the 4th stage of the Tour of Catalonia, Alejandro Valverde won the general classification of this Spanish event for the third time in his career. « With Nairo (Quintana) in second place, we had a great week. Personally, I could not have hoped for a better start to the season. » Valverde already has eight wins to his name, but this Catalan victory moves him into first place of the UCI WorldTour ranking for the moment.
