Denifl Takes First Grand Tour Stage Win of Career at Aqua Blue Sport’s Grand Tour Debut

After a breakthrough performance at July’s Tour of Austria with a stage win and overall general classification victory, Stefan Denifl’s team Aqua Blue Sport lined up for their first ever Grand Tour at the Vuelta a España. While racing this event at all was a tremendous accomplishment for the nascent program, Denifl didn’t settle for a start. He wanted a result. And he got one. In the mountainous stage 17, Denifl broke away early and eventually separated from his handful of breakaway companions for the most glorious result of his career. This was the first Grand Tour stage win for Denifl, the first Grand Tour stage win for his team, and the first Grand Tour stage win by a Knight Composites sponsored program.
