Damiano Caruso (Bahrain Victorious) enjoyed a fantastic lone victory atop the Alto de Velefique on stage 9 of the Vuelta a España, soloing from the break from 70 kilometres out to add another high-mountain victory to his Alpe Motta triumph at May’s Giro d’Italia.

The Italian was the only man from the break – which took over half the stage to get away – to survive ahead of the general classification favourites, as race leader Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) extended his overall lead 1:05 later, leading Enric Mas (Movistar) home after the pair had dispatched with the remainder of the GC favourites.
Jack Haig (Bahrain Victorious) led the chasers across the line another 39 seconds down, with Miguel Angel López (Movistar) and Adam Yates (Ineos Grenadiers) in his wheel. The latter’s teammate and team leader Egan Bernal endured a day to forget, though, dropping in the final kilometres and crossing the line alongside Giulio Ciccone (Trek-Segafredo) at 2:10, 1:05 behind Roglič.
