Thank you for following our live coverage of stage 10 of the Vuelta a Espana!
Sbaragli was a little emotional as he spoke to Eurosport post-stage.
"It is a dream come true for me because it's been four times in this Vuelta that I've tried to do my sprint and today when I crossed the finish line, I still cannot believe it," Sbaragli said.
"It is a dream for me and a dream for MTN-Qhubeka."
Sbaragli has confirmed that this is in fact his second career win. He also won the opening stage at the 2013 Tour of Korea in his debut season with MTN.

Race director Javier Guillén has suggested it is the toughest ever stage in the history of the Vuelta.
The stage includes six climbs, four of which are first category, and then a mountain finish. It is all in 138km.
The riders get to enjoy the first rest day of this year's Vuelta on Tuesday. But they will need it because they face the terrible mountain stage in Andorra on Wednesday.
He reveals he had extra motivation because his girlfriend and family was at the finish.
Sbaragli celebrated on the podium, punching the air and with a big smile on his face.
The overall classification remains unchanged with Rodriguez (Katusha) second at 57 seconds and Chaves (Orica-GreenEdge) third at 59 seconds.
The stage was Sbaragli's first ever professional win after a long run of placing this season.
Well played Kristian Sbaragli. A huge win for the young Italian.

It's another Grand Tour stage win for the MTN-Qhubeka team after Steve Cummings took a stage at the Tour de France.
Results show that Sbaragli beat Degenkolb, Rojas (Movistar) and van der Sande (Lotto Soudal).
Giant-Alpecin can take heart from the fact that Dumoulin kept the race lead.
Provisional results confirm that the Italian from MTN-Qhubeka won it.
Sbaragli is celebrating.
Degenkolb was far to back when the sprint started. He came up fast but not fast enough it seems.
Kristian Sbaragli (MTN - Qhubeka) hit out first and put his arms up but Degenkolb could have got him on the line.
That was close!
Riders bump for position.
Last Km! Sprint time!
With Ewan, Sagan and Bouhanni out of the race, Degenkolb is the big favourite to win.
The race leader is also riding for Degenkolb today.
Hansen makes an attack but Dumoulin chases him down.
Can anyone beat Degenkolb in a sprint finish? It is his stage to lose. Unless an attack gets away in the finale.
The trio sit up. It's going to be a sprint finish.
Movistar is also riding at the front of the peloton. Perhaps Valverde will try his hand in the sprint.
The road to the finish is long and straight, with only roundabouts to split the routine.
Elissonde, De Marchi and Sicard lead by just 10 seconds.
Other riders are also chasing to get back up to the front group.
He has two teammates riding for him.
It will be fascinating to see which sprinters have survived the climb. Degenkolb is there, in a chase group of 30 riders.
The trio have 25 seconds as the descent ends but the peloton is chasing them.
Henao will lose time overall after his spill.
Crash! Two Team Sky riders seem to have slid out on a fast corner.
Dumoulin leads the peloton and is catching Brambilla.
We're on the descent now. And is fast!
Dumoulin steps in and goes to the front, trying to control the peloton. But Brambilla (Etixx) goes clear alone.
Lawson Craddock is on the front doing the hard work for Giant.

Giant-Alpecin are riding tempo on the front, for both Dumoulin and perhaps even for Degenkolb for the sprint. Both are in the front group.
The peloton is at 30 seconds with them lined out at speed. This is a fast climb.
Elissonde makes it across to the duo and attacks them.
The duo have 40 seconds.
They have a gap on the twisting roads but will need a big gap to stay until the finish.
Sicard (Europcar) is going across to De Marchi.
Kenny Elissonde (FDJ) tries too.
We have some adventurers: Alessandro De Marchi (BMC) tries his hand.
The climb starts to kick up but it is constant at 5.6%.
The peloton surged through the sprit without contesting the prizes or bonus seconds.
The big teams are lined out in formation as the climb approaches.
The average speed for the first two hours was a leg burning 44.5km/h.
The pace is steady at 54km/h before the climb.
The riders will pass through the sprint with 25km yo go and then reach the top of the 7km climb with 17km to go.
The races passes through Benicasim and sweep up Terpstra.
Movistar and Tinkoff are riding to bring back Terpstra. They have already caught the six riders who tried a second attack.
The riders are passing near the beach but will start the climb in 10km.
Tersptra is riding at 44km/h but the chasers are closing the gap.
Movistar and Tinkoff-Saxo are trying to control the peloton.
Etixx are blocking any attacks from the peloton, defending Tersptra's attack.
A group of riders are trying to get across to Terpstra.
A series of roundabouts is making it hard for the peloton to chase.
Roche also stops for a service from his team car. He seems to have changed bikes and so needs to change chase again.
Niki Terpstra (Etixx-QuickStep) fired off the attack.
Roche is coming back up through the team cars as riders go on the attack up front.
Roche visits the race doctor for some treatment on his elbow. It seems that Andrew Talansky (Cannondale-Garmin) also went down in the spill.
The Movistar team has hit the front and lined out the peloton.
Roche gets some help from Puccio, who was in the front split until recently.
Nico Roche (Team Sky) goes down in a crash but seems okay and is up chasing.
#LV2015 All together. Waiting for new attacks.

Gruppo compatto as they say in Italian. The peloton has caught the attackers after a fast, aggressive opening 80km.
The pack is chasing down the move, with the gap down to 35 seconds now.
Giant and Trek are leading the peloton.
The situation is still very fluid with six riders now of the front, with 24 chasers. The peloton is only 50 seconds behind.
The peloton is still chasing but the gap is up to 1:20.
Race radio says that Cameron Meyer, George Bennett, Riccardo Zoidl, Amael Moinard, Kenny Elissonde, Jerome Cousin, Luis León Sánchez, Ian Boswell, Rodolfo Torres and Pello Bilbao have all lost contact with the split.
As expected the 40-rider group has split after a series of attacks.
The riders in the split are riding hard but so is the peloton and is at 1:10.
At last, its official. Rigoberto Uran will ride with Cannondale-Garmin in 2016.

Two riders have opened a slight gap on the front group now. Carlos Verona (Etixx - Quick Step) and Riccardo Zoidl (Trek Factory) have 45 seconds near the top of the climb.
With 60km covered the riders are about to reach the top of the last climb of this opening section.They can then enjoy a long descent and so may open their lead.
The peloton is chasing but is 1:10 behind.
It has been confirmed that all the teams have rider in the 40-rider split. This move could stay away and gain a lot of time.
Race radio has announced that Caleb Ewan (Orica - GreenEdge) has abandoned the Veulta. He was suffering earlier in the stage.
With Lawson Craddock and Johannes Frohlinger in the split, the race leader Tom Dumoulin may have decided to give up his race lead.
According to race radio, the 40 riders include: Dario Cataldo, Matteo Montaguti, Sergio Henao, Carlos Verona, Riccardo Zoidl, Tiago Machado, Daniel Navarro, Peter Velits, Lawson Craddock, Rubén Plaza, Martijn Keizer, Luis León Sánchez, Larry Warbasse, Imanol Erviti, David Arroyo, Natnael Berhane, Jurgen Van den Broeck, Romain Hardy, Tsgabu Grmay, Andrey Amador, Pello Bilbao, Eduard Vorganov, Carlos Quintero, Maxime Monfort, Ian Boswell, Salvatore Puccio, Benjamin King, Kenny Elissonde, Stephen Cummings, Cameron Meyer, Amael Moinard, George Bennett, Darwin Atapuma, Ángel Madrazo, Mickael Cherel, Davide Villella and Rodolfo Torres.
Johannes Frohlinger, Jérôme Cousin and Jay McCarthy where the three to get across and get the last 3 tickets to freedom.
Almost every team has at least one rider in the break, making it difficult to see who will lead the chase.
The three chasers have caught the 37, making for a 40-rider front group. There are only 182 riders in the race.
The opening 70km are in the hills, making the racing even harder. There are reports that Caleb Ewan (Orica - GreenEdge) has been suffering at the back of the peloton.
The Alto del Desierto de la Palmas is 7km long and comes just 16km from the finish.
Three other riders are chasing at 50 seconds with the peloton at 1:50.
There are currently 37 riders in a front group, which should arguably described as a split in the peloton.
Riders are also trying to get in the break of the day in case the right moves foes clear and the peloton lets them go.
Today's stage is expected to end in a sprint finish but the riders face a late climb that could hurt some riders.
As we join the race, the riders have covered 30km of the 146km stage between Valencia and Castellón.
