Vine wins again with a great stage and Enric Mas is 2nd, after a solid Evenepoel


Asturias in a real paradise for cycling and this Saturday presented to the society one of those climbs ‘made in Vuelta’ that captures the hearts of the fans and that has been the best setting for the outcome of the first of two important stages on Asturian soil: Colláu Fancuaya. One of those endless climbs, with ramps of up to 19%, where the cyclists spin on top of the bike, where it quickly goes which cyclists are in top form and the shortcomings of less fit ones.


And in the middle of another foggy day Australian Jau Vinewho has already won San Miguel de Aguayo three days ago, he again gave an exhibition, leading the group of favorites. Remco Evenepoel He had a real test today and the Belgian showed that he is now ready to be competitive in three weeks, which is a challenge for him. Enrique More continues to leave good sensations. He stayed on the Belgian wheel at all times and even tried it on the final ramps, before the one primoz roglic who had been with them, solid, but lacking the spark that allowed him to be an indestructible runner. And behind them are the young people Carlos Rodriguez (21 years old). The Spanish champion from Almuñécar had an amazing performance. He was the best in his team, Ineos, and he endured the best, so he jumped to four places in the classification and was fourth, hot on the heels of Roglic. Unbelievable.


This Vuelta has a distinctly Spanish flavor. Mark Solerwinner of BilbaoY Mikel Landawho said he was not for the general classification, was able to enter the breakaway of the 20 runners that had formed at the start, in AColladona lto (2nd). It is located at the beginning of the stage and is ready for the race to start moving. Lutsenko is the first to jump, then usually done, together Valverde and Carapaz theirs. A breakout of about 20 units formed and eventually only ten remained.

These ten runners make their way and their profit is always around four minutes, with all the ‘landistas’ crossing their fingers. in the back, quick step, the leader group, controls the race and plays the difference between the top runners in the race, until the final climb to Colláu Fancuaya (10 kilometers at an average 7.9% average gradient and a maximum of 19%) Julian Alaphilippe speed up The world champion returned to give himself to the goal and once again removed himself for his leader, a Evenepoel unblinking, controlling all his rivals with his eyes.

Ahead, the escape is recovered with the same ease with which a sugar cube dissolves in a black sea of ​​coffee. the australian Arrived nana the direct six kilometers from the finish line and went with amazing ease. His fellow sufferers remained. Mikel Landa opened the jersey fully looking for a breath that would allow him to climb and Mark Soler He knew how to regulate and go from less to more, he managed to come in 2nd, 43 seconds behind the runner of Alpinethat goes from being the best in virtual competitions to having two wins the return and being a broker to consider.

without spilling, Evenepoel he put on a pounding rhythm More, Roglic, Rodriguez and Yates they were able to continue. He did not need more and retained the red jersey of the leader, against a Enrique It is more responsive that he is already placed 2nd overall, first Roglic and there was a time trial on Tuesday at Alicante it’s like a cotton test with no one fooled, waiting for what might happen this Sunday. If this Saturday’s contact in Asturias was difficult, tomorrow’s second high mountain stage in the Asturian lands will be even more intense. We will see how the brokers respond.
