Staggi sounds. EVENEPOEL’s second pearl, the great rage of GESINK

Remco Evenbol. X lead. You can see him very well, with the naked eye, with his beautiful red jersey on his shoulders, but the Belgian kid at this point and from Alto del Piornal sees Madrid. The second stage victory, 35 career successes at the age of 22, came close to bringing the Grand Giroud back to Belgium 44 years after Johan de Moynck managed to win the Giro d’Italia. At this point, he can only lose the Vuelta.

Enrique Mas 9. Today he does not spare himself, he tries to the end to keep up with the Belgian kid, who, however, has one more step. Its another class and offset.

Robert Sink. 9. He spends the whole day on the run, savoring the taste of victory that fades at the last kilometer. It deserved so much more, after so much effort, after so much pedaling. The last victory of her life had her in the Vuelta ale, in 2016 at the Obesque Stadium. It’s hard to get past it and we understand it.

John Helb. 8. Fight like a gladiator, signs of fatigue appear in this third week, but in these moments the feud is being judged.

Carlos Rodriguez. 5.5 He probably also pays for today’s accident, he certainly pays for the third week, in which he shows fatigue, but also talent. He loses a position to Miguel Angel Lopez.

Miguel Angel Lopez. 7. Always attentive and at the center of the action, he does not get distracted for a moment and when he can, he takes a step forward: he is the fourth.

Richard Karabaz. 8. Enter Escape from 41 alone. Log in and store points. The blue polka dot shirt will eventually be hers.

Fausto Masnada. 7. The quick step man enters today’s detachment formed only 50 km after the real battle at the edge of 55 km / h. With Masnada there are also Jean Baquilantes (Intermarche and Anti Joubert), Marc Soler (UAE), Dario Cataldo (Trek Segafredo), Raul Garcia (Kern Pharma), David Villila (Covidés), Vincenzo Nibali (Astana), Xandro Morrissey (Alpecin). ), Lawson Craddock (bike exchange), Omar Goldstein and Alessandro de Marchi (Israel Premier Tech), Rudy Mollard and Thibaut Pinot (Grupama FDG), Richard Carabaz and Tao Geojgan Hart (Ineos), Nicholas Prudhomme (Ag2r Citroen), Nelson Oliveira Carlos Verona (Movistar), Gutzon Martin, Mikel Ituria (Oscaltel), Jose Manuel Diaz, Daniel Navarro, Jitsi Paul (Burgos), Sam Omen, Robert Jesink, Mike Teunicen (Jumbo Visma), Sergio Higuita, Danny van Poppel, Matthew Fabro (Bora Hansgrohey, Eduardo Ginoga), Eduardo Ginoja Suterlin (victor Bahrain), Daniel McClay, Elie Gisbert, Lucas Ossian and Clement Russo (Arkia Samsik), Marhawi Kudus, James Shaw, Mark Paddon, Julius van den Berg, Hugh Carthy (EF).

Jay Fine. 17. Today’s goal is only one: defending the polka dot jersey from attacking Richard Carapaz who is 29 points behind the Alpecin rider. However, for the Australian the day starts off in the worst way: after just 20km he ends up in the lands with Carlos Rodriguez, Quentin Pacher, Mads Pedersen, Mark Paddon and other riders. It takes a big hit and he should retire. Pity.

Samuel Battistella. 19. The boy from Astana was one of the happy notes of this Vuelta, the new name that all of us fans are beginning to learn. Nothing to do, he also has to pack his bags and go home with a fever and bronchitis, like Bruno Armerel.
