Evenepoel tees off

Remco Evenepoel hit his chest several times as he crossed victoriously Arinsal’s Gate. It was a gesture of authority, justification, number one. A “Here I am” to the rivals, notably the mighty Jumbo hanging the main favorite sign. Evenepoel is the defending champion. And this condition also obliges. Scoring the first goal in the Roosters’ first head-to-head was the best message he could convey to his rivals. And to the rest of the world. A few meters later, still overwhelmed by the speed of the sprint, Remco collided spectacularly with an assistant. It wasn’t a serious accident, although there was blood all over his face. La Vuelta is unlucky this year in its relationship with Evenepoel, who hit it off on Saturday a huge bang in the goal of Barcelona This was the case due to the lack of visibility in the team time trial and on Sunday one of the victims of the tacks the vandals on duty. The red jersey is a good symbol for the start the reconciliation with the great who won a year ago.

Evenepoel won the eleven-runner sprinta large group that included practically all the roosters. The Belgian beat Jonas Vingegaard, the winner of the tour, a duel that takes shape from the first mountain when Juan Ayuso, the first of the leaders to open fire on the ramps of Arinsal. He also entered with them Cousin Roglic, Fourth, whose surprise might have been not seeing him higher up in the sprint. And also Enric Mas, who represented the greatest doubt after his long inactivity to the candidates. But he was riding with the best which, combined with Saturday’s brilliant Movistar time trial, now puts him in his position Second overall, 5 seconds behind Evenepoel. Coincidentally or not, the first two places at the 2022 Vuelta. If anything, he was absent from the fray Geraint Thomas, who came off the hook, helped by Egan Bernal in social work and gave in on arrival at 1:11, too much at the time.

the troop of La Vuelta rolled through Andorra like at home. And even without the how. About 120 active cyclistsThey currently live in the Principality, according to the calculations of the pioneer Purito Rodríguez. For this reason, this third stage stimulated many runners. For example to Jay Vine: that he initially boasted of going up the Ordino, the penultimate port of the day, “two or three times” a week. Vine was one of the riders who tried to show off in friendly territory and attack their ramps but didn’t get far. They came out to their wheel Romain Bardet, the best placed rooster to wear the red jersey at this stage of the race; Wilco Kelderman as Jumbos Sekant and Andrea Bagioli in the same role for Soudal. The quick reaction of these two teams confirmed what had already been suspected throughout the tour due to their permanent leadership positions which they wanted to maintain the situation under control.

The first arrival high suggested no excessive harshness on the map, however his early appearance in La Vuelta, in the third phase, called for extreme caution. It’s not common for a day of these features to happen so soon, but the closeness to it is the departure from Barcelona shaped the early morning of Andorra. And of course, even in the Pyrenees, it was normal to give the mountain a certain importance. The unprecedented climb to Arinsal It was to be the first test to measure the temperature of the taps. And they all knew it. Particularly, the jumbo from Vingegaard and RoglicAnd the Soudal d’Evenepoel, They took responsibility for the head patterns. The two teams led the day, sometimes accompanied by Ineos or UAE. Nobody wanted shocks. Don’t give up the power.

It was exactly eThe “Andorran” vine that took over of the peloton in the final port that ended the day’s breakaway Damiano Caruso, an old fox The 35-year-old, who finished second at the 2021 Giro d’Italia in the same season he won a superb stage in Alto de Velafique, competed alongside another famous, Lennard Kämna, who is only one win away in La Vuelta to complete the triple crown. The duo, survivors of a group of 11, succumbed to the UAE push that started a brave Juan Ayuso, the first capo to propose a real attack. The Spanish fan will have a lot of fun with Ayuso this year. and also with What’s more, a hallway that becomes the focal point of the home, where he finished second three times. In the first cockfight, both showed their faces.
