We had another interesting episode, where the leader got a good scare when he came down. These fears ultimately accuse, we must not forget yesterday’s retreat due to the collapse of his partner at Quick-Step Alaphilippe, but I am convinced that they also strengthen the Remco Evenepoel. Today’s stage is divided into two pelotons, in the first group the 32 cyclists who make up the breakaway and the rest of the peloton. The escapees had a margin of about 11 minutes, and since there was no dangerous rider in the breakaway, the leader’s team did not work from the start.
In the end, of the 32 escapees, the strongest was Richard Carapaz, who was not in good shape, but he was smart, he was going for the arrival and he did not waste it. Bravo for him.
The favorites arrived together at the foot of the harbor. There was some acceleration of The Movistar team and of Jumbo and in the end the one who really accelerated was the leader in the last kilometer.
He has been very good young Carlos Rodriguez, who attacked six kilometers from the finish line, but did it from too far and then accused him. The sin of youth.
One more day I want to highlight Mark Soler. The Catalan finished 3rd and is having a great Vuelta in my opinion. Enrique More He was in his place, but I was surprised that his team worked on the climb and that he didn’t try to take advantage of it afterwards.
The racing situation remains as it was yesterday. We are all waiting for the difficult phase, which is coming, to see what will happen. People were starting to get a little tired, so a breakout of 32 cyclists formed.
This Friday the favorites will continue to watch out for each other, in a breaking stage, with many ups and downs, at the gates of a weekend with important difficult stages.
