Last weekend Xàbia cyclist Juan Ayuso participated in the Clásica de San Sebastián, a race celebrating its 40th edition which is on the professional cycling calendar as a preparation between the Tour de France and the Vuelta de España.

Ayuso made his debit in a WorldTour event (the highest category of professional cycling) and managed to sneak into the top 20, finishing in a creditable 18th position, crossing the line 1m 36s behind the winner, the American Neilson Powless, who finished the course in 5h 34m 31s.

Ayuso summarized his performance on Twitter:

Fulfilling one of my dreams debuting at the Worldtour.

Thanks to all of you who, despite the rain, have been on the kerbside shouting my name. I gave everything I had, even though the end was long, I enjoyed the whole day.

Everything will come …
