Jonas Vingegaard won on Tuesday in Bejes and took more than a minute from Sepp Kuss. Today, the arrival at Angliru could change the Vuelta.

After Jonas Vingegaard’s victory yesterday, red jersey Sepp Kuss sees the Dane move back to 29 seconds in the General Classification, and Primoz Roglic is 1’33 behind. The three riders of the Jumbo Visma could once again fight for the final victory today, with the legendary finish at the Alto de l’Angliru. This pass, 13.1km long at 9.4% (with passages at almost 20%), will inevitably crown the strongest. Sepp Kuss will have to resist the attacks of Jonas Vingegaard, who seems determined to achieve the Tour-Vuelta double without giving his faithful lieutenant any favors. Primoz Roglic, winner of the Giro this year, is still in ambush, but he will also have to watch Juan Ayuso (UAE Team Emirates) who is only a minute behind him and will want to get on the podium.

Remco Evenepoel (Soudal Quick-Step), far in the General Classification, will undoubtedly try to embark on a distant breakaway. He will want to take the points at the top of the Alto de la Colladiella and the Alto del Cordal, classified in the first category, to consolidate his jersey as best climber. Not sure that the Jumbo Visma will let the leading men win the stage, but the Belgian will play his luck boldly, with or without the favorites. We could also find the French Romain Bardet (DSM Firmenich) and Lenny Martinez (Groupama FDJ) in a breakaway, they who showed themselves strong on certain mountain stages.

Here is the stage classification and the general classification of the Vuelta, updated at the end of each stage:
