The jumbo withstands the blow

Valladolid returned by bike the return and the sun in the image of Spain. After one day off In competition and after a rainy weekend in many parts of the peninsula, the Castilian city returned to normal an urban time trial which placed a new map of the race. if expected a heavy blow from Remco Evenepoel, What came up was number 1 in terms of the jumbo cyclists and the rest of the favourites a meritorious defense of Primoz Roglic, the three-time champions of the Spanish round, climbing some steps as a candidate for domination on September 17 in Madrid. The Belgian prevailed against all his competitors, but without any decisive differences. While Sepp Kuss is no longer a straw man.

currently, who reigned in Valladolid was Filippo Gannawho denied the 26-kilometer time trial out of competition The Italian, a two-time world champion in the specialty, had no rivals in the battle for the stage he won 16 seconds ahead of Evenepoel and 36 ahead of Roglic. Ganna’s triumph brings some joy the atmosphere of Ineoswhich has been rocked by falls and a series of accidents throughout La Vuelta their leader, Geraint Thomasuntil the now retired Laurent de Plus and Thymen Arensman. The British team driver had already hoped for victories in the sprints, in fact he had Second at Burriana. But his thing is actually the time trial. And then it was deadly.

Behind Ganna there were two battles for overall victory. One who played the lead role the actual leader, Sepp Kuss. Another who played the lead role the virtual leader, Remco Evenepoel. The first of them, a promoted player, retained the red jersey with greater solvency than expected. Marc Soler shortened it by 17 seconds, but he’s still second overall, 26″ behind the American. The second of them, a brilliant time trialist, beat all of his rivals but without the predicted authority. Evenepoel was only able to give Roglic a 10 second leadwhich stays at 27″, not enough for the upcoming hardness.

It’s not that Remco can’t be up front for the rest of the Tour, we’ve already seen him tame the jumbo in the Xorret de Catí, but he finds himself too alone before the tridents of the Jumbo and the UAE, announced in such demanding stages as in the Pyrenees: the Tourmalet on Friday and Larrau on Saturday. Let’s gather rivals. The Dutch team is already 1:09 ahead of Evenepoel Roglic and Jonas Vingegaard, at 27″ or 1:13. The Emirati team, on the other hand, sees Soler 43 seconds ahead; already João Almeida and Juan Ayusowith 1:07 and 1:16 behind. The Belgian is surrounded from two powerful squads. Everything against the Belgian.

As for the rest of Spanish, there is no need to delete it definitively Enric Mas leaving Valladolid 2:50 minutes from Kuss, but 1:41 from Evenepoel. You have to remember that The Spaniard started the Vuelta in bad shape and that he’s usually a runner who grows in the second half of the race. We’ll see how far this progress can take him. Which, predictably, has disappeared from the top spots Mikel Landa, who lived on borrowed money the time he was caught in an escape. Now he’s 11th at 3:21, and perhaps he should think in stages more than defecate for a top 10 finish that adds little to his career anyway.
