The hunter Herrada

Jesús Herrada is a habitual hunter, a great breakaway finisher, a cyclist who has honed his good nose with seniority. At the age of 33, the man from La Mancha emerged victorious from Mota del Cuervo a breakout of 26 runners In The Black Lagoon to increase his harvest to three inches The return to Spainall with the Cofidis jersey. It premiered in 2019 Ares del Maestrat and in 2022 it repeated itself cistierna. The escape fulfilled the planned script of this 11th stage and made for the only show of the day. Behind, the roosters decided to smoke the day. Remco Evenepoel established himself as the leader of a herd who obeyed his young pastor unconditionally.

The stage showed it a “single-port” or “single-port” profile, the two expressions that have become popular to define this type of route, which, although it cannot be defined as a mountain route because it is not, nevertheless culminates in a somewhat demanding climb. Actually, The Spanish round itself defines it in their road book as “a flat stage with a hilly end”. How it is. In this case it was Laguna Negra, in the province of Soria, 6.5 kilometers with 6.8% average gradient and 14% gradient that has already been climbed La Vuelta 2020 with victory for Dan Martin, ahead of Primoz Roglic, who didn’t move this time. This year the roosters came ahead. This time they preferred to smoke a cigar.

The “Uniport” day was ideal for a pampering holiday and for a torn “banner” among the line managers. The “banner” is another recent slang word for the last mile attacks in search of a handful of seconds. The first part, the escape, was taken to heart. The other, no. It took a while for the adventure to form, until finally a group of 26 runners took shape the presence of Geraint Thomasthe 2018 Tour champion and Second in the last Girowho jumped accompanied Winner of the previous day in the time trial, Filippo Ganna. Lerma’s departure also motivated the home team, Burgos bra that presented three runners on the counter, like the French from Groupama and Ag2R. Among all, several stage hunters shone: Andreas Kron, Rudy Molard, Romain Grégoire, Jonathan Caicedo, Jorge Arcas, Luis León… and of course Jesús Herrada.

Thomas made the favorites list at the Vuelta but the falls and lack of legs eased up downgraded to 13:05 minutes. With this disadvantage, he expected a double whammy: a stage win and a bite for the general to project it back up. Ganna deflated in favor of the Welshman, He couldn’t finish the work. Geraint was one of the most viewed corridors and besides, it didn’t turn out great either. In the last phase he had to control an attack by Caicedo, that touched him. Eventually he finished fifth and neutralized about six minutes, although from a distance he can still see his natural spot: at 7:34. Herrada was also very distinctive, he is well known in the peloton, but The Manchego hunter did not miss the shot conquer the first Spanish victory this issue and wear the polka dot jersey as an extra prize king of the mountain

The second assumption, the “Banner” attack, did not exist. The roosters decided to go upstairs, whistling to La Laguna Negra with a unsupportive attitude with the public and the organizer. Evenepoel emerged as the ringleaderwith the approval of the jumbo’s tricephaly. Only Hugh Carthy moved 13th with 4:56 minutes, but the Dutch sent Wilco Kelderman as a secant. Then it was Remco himself who gave contradictory acceleration one of those cocky boasts how much style
