A day like a swing through the BikeExchange.

In the middle of the morning, first of all, sadness and disappointment prevailed, when the leader of the team, Simon Yates, had to resign due to a positive test for covid.

The eleventh stage of the Vuelta

in a detailed report

Not even twelve hours later, she could celebrate the Australian state again. The day’s work at the front of the peloton and the door put into young Kaden Groves paid off.

He became the winner of the eleventh stage.

Even the perfect dog among the team’s colleagues did not receive a triumph on the tray. Spurt opened from the same position as point leader Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo). Jene Pedersen was unable to slip around the switch as deftly as Groves and finished and fifth.

John Degenkolb (DSM) was the first to start the sprint, but he started sprinting too early and the mines heard him. Pascal Ackermann, the sprinter of the UAE team, was a dog, but even he did not last at a high pace and to the finish line.

Tim Merlier (Alpecin-Deceuninck) and Danny van Poppel (Bora-Hansgrohe) were close behind again. But as soon as Groves clicked through the competition, none of the named had him.

It’s a fantastic feeling. We were all disappointed because of Simon, but this puts us in a better mood. I won because we had the best organized team. The guys did a great job, they worked hard in front of me, but I immediately stopped, pouring a lot of water in the cli.

They spent a quiet day as the overall favorite. The worst drama for current leader Remec Evenepoel came about ten kilometers before the finish line, when his teammate Julian Alaphilippe fell while passing through the city and had to leave the race.

It was a beautiful day for me, not what we expected. Drinking for Julian is a big waste, going for it at such a calm stage as that day. Julian did so well and was in great form, pity him in red. At the same time, the team needed a valuable helper and mentor. It’s a coda, but we’re not the only team that hunts seductresses, Pipomnl.

In hospital, it was revealed that Julian Alaphilippe dislocated his right shoulder. An X-ray showed that there were no deep fractures. On Thursday, Julian will travel to Belgium to be flown to a hospital in Herentals to have another wound removed. The age of his skull cannot be determined at this time, the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl team later stated on the official website

In addition to Yates, due to a positive covid test, Pavel Sivakov (Ineos) had to leave the Vuelta before the end of the stage, so far nine times in total, and those of his teammate Vojtcha epa (Kern Pharma).

Therefore, the only ech in seduction probably decided to raise the mood of at least the dark sponsor, and immediately after the start, he went into the void. Even though he was condemned to failure due to the profile of the stage on foot, he and the other two riders spent the whole day on the lead and thus earned the attention of cameras and foreign television commentators.

After 100,000 kilometers in the gap, the epa was the main field to finish and finished the stage in 125th place with a loss of 1:07 minutes on the train. He ranks 85th overall.

How did it happen?

A day for sprinters. 191 kilometers and a day of categorized climbs, that was a clear call to the sprint team in eleven stages. Even after 1,600 meters of climbing, the fourth mass finish of the summer was expected.

epa in nik. Immediately after the start, a trio of seductress from second division teams separated, among them Vojtch epa. His colleagues were Jetse Bol (Burgos-BH) and Joan Bou (Euskaltel-Euskaudi). The sprint teams had no problem with such a combination, and so the trio had a one-minute jump after ten kilometers.

Hot but calm end of the day. The route from the ElPozo site in the city of Alhama de Murcia led to Cabo de Gata in the middle of the day. The thermometer showed 30 C in the wall and inside the room. An ideal place to relax after a long day and recover before a quarter of a mountain test. The average speed after those seductive hours was around 38 km/h, which is one of the fastest speeds even compared to other Grand Tours flights.

Enter the peloton. At the earliest opportunity, the refugees reached about 170 kilometers before the finish line, when they had half a minute. The colleagues of the sprinting teams at the front of the peloton quickly put up with those minutes. The opportunity started to dream again and around a hundred kilometers to the finish line, when another strong wind started in the open countryside. Because of this, the peloton sped up and epa et al. only a minute and a thousand seconds to go.

Sad end of the world champion. However, as soon as the wind calmed down and the peloton entered the hilly landscape, it also slowed down in speed and the pace began to increase again. In one of the falls, the epic’s bike slipped and the so-called seductress got to know the Polish asphalt firsthand. But he quickly got on his bike and overtook some colleagues from nowhere. A very similar situation turned out for Julian Alaphilipp. After the fall, the world champion was left sitting on the road with his head down and finally had to leave the race in an ambulance.

Disintegration of niche. Fifty kilometers remained until the finish, when Bol broke away from the trio on the lead. epa had just picked up the canisters from Tom’s car, so he couldn’t react immediately and the Dutchman ran away from him. After a while, he and Bou tried to catch up, but the gap was too big. After a while, epa and the panel let themselves be overtaken by the peloton. Snaen Bola continued to ride another twenty kilometers, but he too was absorbed by the main field.

Pedersen has a straight line, but he didn’t miss the stage. Ten kilometers before the finish line, the first exciting fire of the day occurred as the peloton approached the sprint straight. In the end, Mads Pedersen won it without a fight. He talked about the goal of winning the Vuelt stage to keep his green jersey. In this regard, he will have to try dl, he was beaten in the middle by Kaden Groves.
