Eiking’s Vuelta a España’s leadership ends in pain and disappointment



Odd Christian Eiking’s spell in the Vuelta a España’s leaders jersey ended in pain and disappointment after Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) and Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) attacked with 60km to go and distanced him before he crashed on the descent as he fought to defend a place in the top five overall.

The Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux rider had led the Vuelta a España since stage 10 to Rincón de la Victoria when he was part of a breakaway. He and Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux valiantly defended the red jersey day after day but there was little he, or they, could do when the race entered the steep Asturian mountains for the finish atop Lago de Covadonga.
