The Navarrese rider knocked out his rivals in the last kilometer of Stage 13 of the Vuelta a España, bringing glory to the Euskadi-Murias team in its debut in the competition.

Ending in a category 1 climb with extremely demanding ramps of as much as 20%, against top competitors from the World Tour, Oscar Rodríguez brings home a historic victory for Euskadi - Murias in its inaugural participation in the Vuelta a España. Epic!

"I still can't believe I've won," said the young cyclist right after crossing the finish line at the top of La Campeona, after a tough day of 174.8 km and numerous changes of pace.

One kilometer from the finish line, Oscar Rodríguez took off and left all his rivals behind, earning his first honors as a pro cyclist and rounding out a glorious season for Euskadi-Murias.

Congratulations to Oscar and Euskadi-Murias for making history!
