Jumbo-Visma's Dylan Groenewegen has taken his third stage victory at the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana at the first day of its 2020 edition.

The Dutchman displayed a strong performance at the end of the first stage of the Spanish race, leaving behind his fellow countryman Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) and Norwegian sprinter Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates). This is also the first victory of the season for the Dutch team.

"It's always nice to start the season with a victory," said Groenewegen. "As a sprinter, you feel the pressure to perform right at the beginning of the season. Then it is nice if it works out right away. That really takes off some pressure of me and the team. The team was very strong today.

"Due to my own fault, I started the sprint a little too far out. In the first race of the season it is always a matter of finding the right feeling and trying to find each other again in the lead out. Eventually I had enough space to sprint and I know I can get far. The first win is in the bag and that is a really nice feeling."
