Romain Bardet: I knew Remco Evenepoel wanted to win this Vuelta stage like Eddy Merckx

Sitting exhausted on a pile of team kit bags next to a barrier a few hundred metres after the finish of stage 14 of the Vuelta a España, Romain Bardet (Team dsm-firmenich) took more than a few minutes to regain his composure after a mammoth breakaway with Remco Evenepoel (Soudal-QuickStep).

Dropped by Evenepoel with a steady but not sharp acceleration some four kilometres from the finish line at Bonaigua-Larra, Bardet had no chance of regaining contact, hellbent as Evenepoel was on bouncing back as high as possible from his GC debacle on Saturday.
