A day that the young Cofidis cyclist had marked on the calendar, but that ended in the scare of his life.

His heart raced to 230 beats.

And not precisely because of the emotion.

The man from Huesca, who was even on the run - the fifth stage of the Spanish round was finally scored by

Tim Wellens

- suffered a tachycardia in the middle of the race.
