Roglic risks and almost loses everything on this round

Primoz Roglic bet strong and think he's going to win, because he check what I already sensed, that there is not a single man stronger than him on this spin. But every bet has the risks of him and the Slovenian discovers him in the descent of almachar, when his bicycle slows down his ambition and spits him towards the gutter. A fall very similar to that forced Valverde to abandon a few days ago, product of an irregularity on the road, but from which the Olympic Champion TarreloJ is airy.

He went down fast, but not as much as to stampered against the riddle. He manages to slow down, barely scratched, and to avover the march without apparent difficulties. He already without advantage over Mas, López and Company, but at that moment it is already the least. Despite everything, it ended up being a stroke and a lesson for the future: it is not convenient to risk more than the account when looking at the victory in the hand, with the wildcard of the final counterreloch to correct potential unforeseen in the mountain. Final, everything was left except for a substantial difference in the theoretical, much less in the practical: Roglic is no longer the leader of the return. One circumstance, however, controlled and consented by the Jumbo, which gives the glory to the Norwegian Odd Christian Eiking, a cyclist that a priori will not be a threat in the long term and that takes advantage of its presence in the flight to be a leader with 2: 17 Unlike the Roglic himself. A day of glory for him and for his intermarché, the most modest team of the World Tour who had already dressed the Red Maillot on this round with Taaramäe.The day is also successful for Michael Storer, the DSM climber in Rincón de la Victoria His second stage triumph is aimed after having also won on the balcony of Alicante. The Australian was stronger than a flight of 31 cyclists who came to enjoy more than 13 minutes of advantage over the peloton and who relocates Guillaume Martin in the fight for the podium, because now the French is second with almost two minutes of advantage Over more, which is maintained at the Roglic Estela.

The emotion seemed to concentrate precisely at the escape, but in the ascension to Almáchar, the Ineos put to work in the squad to Carapaz, announcing his desire to fight. It was then when Roglic decided to break the script planned with an unexpected and very hard attack, in a stretch in which the difference was moving around 9%, which left without response to the rest of the Favorites of the General.Mas and Lopez managed to react, Forming a group with Haig -New Bahrain Leader before the Landa Debacle, again hopped very soon- and Kuss. Bernal and yachts, on the other hand, suffered from behind and ended up giving 37 seconds in the goal. At the post-position, Roglic enjoyed 18 seconds of advantage over him, an income he tried to expand risking the decline in Rincón de la Victoria. That was his mistake. "We knew it was a dangerous descent, we were not going to take risks," he explained more later. ROGLIC did not know, "he gave him equal- and he ended up kissing the asphalt, fortunately without apparent physical consequences. In the end, the Slovenian ended up reaching goal with Mas, López and company. The next time he wants to attack, with a descent ahead, he will think better.
