Jack Haig (Bahrain Victorious) has successfully defended his third overall position in the last stage of the Vuelta a España.

The Australian rider started the time trial of the Spanish race's last stage with an advantage of one minute over Adam Yates. Although at moments it seemed like the Briton was getting closer, in the end, the rider of Bahrain Victorious climbed to the third podium position of the race.

"It's incredible," Haig said. "I was just speaking to my wife saying how you always dream of getting on a podium at a Grand Tour, but I really never knew it was possible or not. It’s amazing to move to Bahrain Victorious and then having the crash at Tour, and come here with no expectations, and be third on the podium.

"I have no words for it, and I want to thank everyone who got me here, as it doesn’t just happen overnight. It’s not just a years work, and there are so many people I’d like to thank along the way that helped me. I will keep approaching racing the way I do, as long as I’m happy with the right people around me and enjoy it. If you’ve got that, then the results come, and I couldn’t be happier."
