Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) moved back into the overall lead of the Vuelta a España after he won stage 17 atop Lagos de Covadonga. Roglič placed a hefty down payment on final overall victory after he dropped breakaway companion Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) with 7.6km of the climb remaining. He reached the summit 1:35 of teammate Sepp Kuss, who was part of a chasing group that caught Bernal just shy of the final kilometre.

In the overall standings, Roglič is now 2:22 clear of Enric Mas (Movistar) and 3:11 ahead of Miguel Angel Lopez (Movistar).
