And we’re rolling on stage 14 of the Vuelta a Espana.
On stage 13 we saw little fight for the break but that should be totally different today. The stage is up for grabs but so is the KOM jersey, and the GC. It’s likely that there will be a huge battle just to get into the break.
Right now the riders are on the start line and we’ll begin the neutralized zone in about five minutes from now. Here’s how things stand on GC coming into the stage.
|Pos.||Rider Name (Country) Team||Result|
|1||Odd Christian Eiking (Nor) Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux||50:31:52|
|2||Guillaume Martin (Fra) Cofidis||0:00:58|
|3||Primoz Roglic (Slo) Jumbo-Visma||0:01:56|
|4||Enric Mas Nicolau (Spa) Movistar Team||0:02:31|
|5||Miguel Angel Lopez Moreno (Col) Movistar Team||0:03:28|
|6||Jack Haig (Aus) Bahrain Victorious||0:03:55|
|7||Egan Bernal Gomez (Col) Ineos Grenadiers||0:04:41|
|8||Adam Yates (GBr) Ineos Grenadiers||0:04:57|
|9||Sepp Kuss (USA) Jumbo-Visma||0:05:03|
|10||Felix Grossschartner (Aut) Bora-Hansgrohe||0:05:38|
The first half of the stage is relatively flat but it’s all change with the Puerto Berzocama and Puerto Collado de Ballesteros coming in quick succession.
Today is going to be a massive day in the Vuelta as we dip into the mountains for another key stage that includes three categorized climbs, including the new summit finish at Pico Villuercas.
