Jonas Vingegaard ends season with Vuelta a Espana - "Now it's really over, I can't wait to spend time with my family"

Jonas Vingegaard has had a long season and a lot of success. He ends it now, after the Vuelta a Espana, he will not race anymore for the 2023 season as he now rest before starting to prepare for the upcoming season.

“You have to be extremely lucky to get first, second and third in a big stage race, avoiding accidents and everything that can happen. I really think it will be very difficult for it to happen again in the future," Vingegaard told TV2. "My season? Now it's really over, I can't wait to spend time with my family."

Vingegaard has achieved success by winning - overall classification and all stages - Gran Camiño and then Itzulia Basque Country. After a lengthy preparation to the Tour de France, that also saw him succeed at the Critérium du Dauphiné, he succeeded, matching Tadej Pogacar in all stages, but thriving at the Col de la Loze as the Slovenian exploded.

After a bit of rest he retuned to racing at the Vuelta a Espana and did not put a foot wrong. Although his time-trial was modest, in the mountains he always performed, and looked the strongest when the race went uphill in the decisive stages. He rode to second as teammate Sepp Kuss took the glory, but the Dane was satisfied with the season finale.
