Vuelta a España a few seconds ago

Another 116 km - 

Without pressing hard on the accelerator, the peloton has already taken a considerable bite from the gap with the front runners.

Under the leadership of Deceuninck-Quick-Step (by top favorite Sam Bennett), the gap has been reduced to 3 minutes.

Still 135 km - 

The lead of the two front runners has already grown to 5.5 minutes.

The peloton, led by the riders of Deceuninck-Quick-Step, believes it for the time being.

In any case, the mob was well guarded at the start, which took place on a military base.

Another 151 km - 

The two refugees probably also know that they have no chance for the stage victory today.

The two riders, who ride for two small Spanish teams, are not interested in that either.

The Spaniard and the Colombian hope to be able to stay ahead for a few hours, so that their sponsors will come into the picture later.

They are given the space of the peloton, which is now reported in two minutes.

153 km to go - 

The first attackers are already there: Aritz Bagues (Caja Rural) and Juan Felipe Osorio (Burgos).

They've been getting 45 seconds off the suit now.

We are officially on the way.

A fall is reported in the neutralized zone.

Andrey Amador (INEOS Grenadiers) is said to have gone down.

It is reminiscent of the crash that his teammate Geraint Thomas threw out of the Giro.

The top ten of the rankings.

This is unlikely to change much today.

  • Daniel Martin +28

  • Hugh Carthy +44

  • Enric Mas +1.54

  • Felix Grossschartner +3.28

    Today Primoz Roglic has his birthday and can blow out 31 candles.

    The Slovenian probably does not have to make an excessive effort on his birthday.

    Assuming it will be a bunch sprint, there is really only one real favorite: Sam Bennett.

    The Deceuninck-Quick-Step sprint gun outclassed the competition last Friday.

    That could just happen again today.

    Jasper Philipsen (UAE Team Emirates) and Pascal Ackermann (BORA-hansgrohe) are its main competitors.

    So the riders are already on their bikes.

    The official start of the stage will be in about ten minutes.

    A number of riders will probably soon try to get away from the peloton with an eagerness to attack.


    💪🏼 ¡Vamossssss a por la etapa 9!

    The profile of today's stage.

    That is certainly not as tight as a billiard cloth, but for Spanish standards we can safely call this 'flat'.

    There is a good chance that the decision will soon fall into a bunch sprint.

    The riders will go to the start of the stage.

    They first drive a number of kilometers in the neutral zone, as is usual.

    The flag is expected to fall at 1.25 pm.

    Primoz Roglic hit back yesterday after his disappointing weekend.

    The Slovenian not only took the stage victory, but also took some time back from classification leader Richard Carapaz.

    After yesterday's scrambling, the profile of the Vuelta stage is flat today.
