EF Pro Cycling puts a man at the head of the peloton.

Partly because of this, the lead of the refugees has dropped to 3.30.

Is this a stage for Hugh Carthy?

The 26-year-old Briton has made a good impression in recent days and is sixth in the general classification at 0.20 from red jersey carrier Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma).

Zeeman does not rule out that it will be decided at a later time to withdraw Dumoulin from the Vuelta.

"As soon as the assessment is that it is not good for him, we make the decision that he will step down. He really wants to contribute and go with the team for the overall victory, but it must also be good for Tom himself."

Dumoulin wants to help Roglic

Tom Dumoulin can forget a good classification, but the Dutchman still wants to be of value in this Vuelta for Primoz Roglic, for example.

"He looks a bit different now and would like to stay to help the team. We are going to put him on the economy mode today and tomorrow, so that he takes good care of himself, gets his energy back and can be of value at the weekend," says Sporty director Merijn Zeeman.
