Vuelta a España · 2 minutes ago

Still 46 km - The situation is now about like this:

-We have a lonely leader with Sergio Higuita.
- Pernsteiner, Rodriguez, Bouchard, Poels and Meintjes drive about a second behind him
-After another minute, Miguel Ángel López is busy with an all-or-nothing attack, helped by teammate Omar Fraile.
Hart, Oliveira and Koch are still in that group, which is twenty seconds ahead of the favorites group, including Roglic.

Vuelta a España · 6 minutes ago

49 km to go - Nowhere are the differences as deceptive as in a descent, but it is clear that Sergio Higuita is falling faster than his fellow refugees. The Colombian throws himself down like a rock and sees that nobody can keep up with him.

Vuelta a España · 9 minutes ago

The moment that López leaves the other classification men behind. The Astana leader's lead over its competitors is still around twenty seconds.

Vuelta a España · 11 minutes ago

55 km to go - When the classification men are at the top, Quintana has to leave a gap. The Colombian, who took a big hit yesterday, will be added in the descent again, but this does not promise much good for him with another climb ahead. Meanwhile, López comes to Omar Fraile, who is going to take his leader in the descent in tow.

Vuelta a España · 13 minutes ago

Another 56.5 km - Bouchard is the first to climb the third climb and takes another ten points for the mountain classification. Poels is also among the front riders, but the classification men are approaching fast.

Vuelta a España · 14 minutes ago

Another 57 km - The group of favorites is considerably thinned out. Only Roglic (Kuss) and Quintana / Valverde (Soler) still have an assistant, for the rest it is everyone, the group is no larger than about eight people. For example, Kelderman is no longer included.

Vuelta a España · 17 minutes ago

Another 58 km - López takes the group of favorites for about twenty seconds. The leaders are just over 1 kilometer from the top, López is more than a minute and a half behind.

Vuelta a España · 21 minutes ago

Another 59 km - López puts the wick in the powder keg among the favorites! That is early, but the Colombian must try something drastic if he still wants to go to the podium.

Vuelta a España · 26 minutes ago

Another 60 km - Under the leadership of mountain king Bouchard and Poels, Koch and Meintjes with another 4 km to the top are called to order again. The peloton is getting very fast in the meantime, the front runners have only three minutes left.

Vuelta a España · 31 minutes ago

63 km to go - Astana is leading the pack on the third climb of the day and at least the pace acceleration causes Roglic to lose some helpers. The backlog on the frontrunners is decreasing quickly, it's only four minutes.

Vuelta a España · 36 minutes ago

Another 64 km - Koch and Meintjes don't want to bother. The German and the South African already have a minute on their former flight mates. They in turn drive a good four minutes ahead of the pack.

Vuelta a España · 39 minutes ago

The horses will not compete for the stage win today, but they do provide beautiful images.

Another 67 km - Koch and Meintjes don't think it is going fast enough in the leading group and the two of them run off at the foot of the third climb. Poels and his companions do not really switch on yet, they trust that they will be added in the climb.

Vuelta a España · one hour ago

Geoffrey Bouchard thinks it's all fine. The Frenchman would of course like to win the stage, but in the meantime he is doing excellent business in the battle for the mountain jersey. Bouchard now has 66 points and that is 22 more than the number two in the mountain classification, Ángel Madrazo, who is also not included in the leading group. Moreover, Bouchard can gather even more points during this ride, because the lead on the peloton is still considerable.
