The Spaniards on the Tour: goodbye to national soil

After two days of storm in the Basque Country, the Tour de France experienced its first day of relative calm on Monday. For much of the day, the peloton took the opportunity to save strength, and the Spanish riders experienced the stage in which the French round left national soil. This is how it went for the Spanish representation in the third stage of the Tour:

Luis Leon Sanchez (27th): Today was the first big opportunity for Cavendish, who has the Merckx record between his eyebrows. Luisle collaborated throughout the day with the Briton, whom he escorted to the final sprint.

Carlos Rodriguez (34th): The man from Ineos kept his strength after two days of wear and tear in which he shone, always with the favourites. He goes up one place overall and is already 9th.

Pello Bilbao (55º): He fulfilled the objective of not having any problems and, like the rest of the riders, he experienced a period of little wear and tear.

Mikel Landa (60th): Like his Bahrain teammate, he didn’t have any notable setbacks. He leaves the first three days with a good feeling and without wasting much time.

Gorka Izagirre (76th): In a Movistar orphan of Enric Mas, the goal has changed completely. But today was not the day to look for an escape, because the sprinters’ teams had everything under control.

Jonathan Castroviejo (103rd): He was seen peeking out of the leading positions of the peloton, and he did his gregarious duties to help Rodríguez and Bernal. At the finish he lost 28 seconds.

Juanpe Lopez (104th): He was also seen ahead of the main group, helping Pedersen. As a result of the effort, he got carried away in the final meters and lost some time. Far in the general, the opportunity for him will come in the mountains.

Antonio Pedrero (107th): He arrived in the same group as Juanpe and, like the rest of his companions, he was aware that today was not the most propitious day to venture into an escape.

Ion Izagirre (129th): He said goodbye to his land and ended up leaving more than a minute in the finish line. Depending on Lafay’s performance, he can go from stage chaser to very good herdsman.

Omar Fraile (130º): He crossed the Bayonne finish line together with Ion, and before losing contact with the peloton he helped his teammates at all times.

Marc Soler (146th): He ended up giving up time, because today was a stage in which other teammates could better support Pogacar. His hour will come on the mountain.

David de la Cruz (147th): He helped to put Cavendish in a good position, and in the final stretch of the day he got carried away.

Alex Aranburu (160º): The one from Movistar is having a discreet start to the Tour, so it is expected that he will improve as the days go by.
