March 11/18 21:04 pm - Paris-Nice Stage 8 and Final GC


Posted by Editoress on 03/11/18
 

Spaniard Marc Soler overtook race leader Simon Yates in a nail-biting final stage on the hills surrounding Nice to win the Race to the Sun. The 24-year-old Movistar rider, 37 seconds behind Yates at the start in the morning rain, crossed the line with enough of a gap to take a 4 second lead over the Briton in the final GC.

Soler, the first rider since Alberto Contador in 2007 to win both the yellow and the best young ride white jersey, finished third in stage 8 behind compatriots David De La Cruz (Sky) and Omar Fraile (Astana), with whom he attacked in Cote de Peille, one of six climbs on the final day's menu. De La Cruz snatched the final stage for the second year in succession ahead of Fraile, with Soler three seconds behind. And it was only thanks to his third place time bonus that Soler was finally declared the 2018 Paris-Nice champion for the first World Tour victory of his career.

Hugo Houle (Astana Pro Team) finished 32nd on the stage at 9:45 back and 57th in the final GC at 1:00:27 back.
