Juan López following mentor Contador’s wheel tracks in Giro d’Italia

For Spain’s Juan Pedro López (Trek-Segafredo), taking the pink jersey on the summit of Mount Etna represented the pinnacle of his career to date. It also took him back to his cycling roots with Spanish racing star Alberto Contador.

Contador is not only the previous Spanish winner and race leader of the Giro d’Italia, back in 2015, but El Pistolero Also triumphed on Mount Etna in 2011, albeit losing that victory as a result of his doping ban.
