The United States has a Grand Tour winner again. Sepp Kuss has won the Spanish Vuelta to become the first American to win one of cycling’s top races since Chris Horner earned the Vuelta victory in 2013.

Grand Tour Events: The Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France are the other Grand Tour events.

Kuss had effectively secured the victory ahead of Sunday’s largely ceremonial stage in the Spanish capital. He had entered the race in a supporting role to his Jumbo-Visma teammates Jonas Vingegaard and Primoz Roglic, who finished second and third respectively.

Kuss, who grew up in Durango and now lives in the European country of Andorra, according to Outside Magazine, achieved the historic victory in impressive fashion.
