Roglic ahead of Vingegaard at the top of Angliru! Earlier in the day, Remco Evenepoel (Soudal Quick-Step) set off on a long adventure with his teammate Mattia Cattaneo. He took the lead at the summit of the Alto de la Colladiella then the Alto del Cordal to consolidate his jersey as best climber, before starting the ascent of the formidable Angliru with 1’20 ahead of the peloton. In this 13.1km long pass at 9.4% (with passages at almost 20%), the Belgian held out for a long time but was inevitably caught 5 kilometers from the finish by the favorites. As expected, the final explanation took place between the Jumbo Visma who signed a new hat-trick! Sepp Kuss, third in the stage, saved the red jersey on his birthday and kept 4 seconds ahead of Jonas Vingegaard.
Mikel Landa finished fourth in the stage and did very well in the General Classification. Marc Soler (UAE Team Emirates), 6th overall before the stage, had attacked on the first pass of the day but was caught and then dropped by the peloton at the foot of Angliru. He lost big today, like his teammate Juan Ayuso, 4th this morning. Tomorrow, the last mountain stage of this Vuelta will arrive at Puerto de la Cruz de Linares, which will be crossed twice during the day. Perhaps the last opportunity for Vingegaard to overthrow the Vuelta.
