“The Jumbo team controlled the stage calmly”

Rafael Carrascoformer Kelme team director, reviews the keys to the second stage of the Vuelta a España.

1. DAY WITHOUT surprises

Stage as expected, including group arrival and sprint. This is logical with a day of flat travel and sprinter teams looking for success before the mountain. Had a high average and Sam Bennett won the sprint. Also, the change of leader, but from the same team, Jumbo.

2. JUMBO CONTROL

Favorites do not move. The Jumbo team controlled the stage calmly. No attacks. On the flat ground, some riders tried to break free and were controlled. There were a few falls, but no consequences.

3. EUSKALTEL, ACTIVE

Euskaltel-Euskadi attacked on several occasions, but they didn’t make a profit, although they advertised. Valverde, Mas or Landa entered the main group.

4. SUCCESS IN THE NETHERLANDS

The Vuelta was a public success yesterday and today, with many people on the roads watching the race go by. It was a success for the race that so many people attended the stages in the Netherlands.

5. THIS WEEK, FLAT STAGE

Expect a completely flat phase, very similar to today. 193.5 km, the longest Vuelta a España. It will be played in a sprint, I imagine with a very high average and an attempt to break away, and I don’t think there will be a change of leader, because Jumbo will control the race.
