It may not be as famous as Alpe d Huez, Mont Ventoux, or Stelvio, but it is the hardest to say.
The Alto de l Anglior was the judge of this year’s 72nd.
It’s a colossus, we chose it correctly, “he was pleased with the start of Javier Guillen.
Right before. The first of the Alto de la Cobertoria became fatal for the Aston duo – Miguel Ángel López and Fabio Aru, who lost contact with the main group and did not get back to it.
Before Alberto Contador, Alberto Contador fired as expected.
“The Last Battle,” wrote before a photo of his Instagram.
And so he fought.
Sunweb, Sky and then Bahrain Meridian.He gradually absorbed the remnants of the original eighteen-member leak, up to 5.5 kilometers before the target stayed alone in England.
He had the last five kilometers in the mountain stage in his life. He walked through as fans and admirers would remember him.
On the bike he danced side-to-side and humiliated the Goat Trail with a 23-percent incline.In the course of the climb, he made his lead up to a minute and a half and virtually sunk to the podium for the top three men in the race.
But in the final kilometers he was running, but he kept the first place despite all exhaustion from the demanding three weeks. / p>
With his racing career, he is as good as the king – winning.
“It was better than ending a victory over England,” Contador smiled at the finish. “I knew there had been a lot of fall in the Cordal congress in the past, but I had to attack Pantan to make some headway,” he explained his strategy.
Second place behind him Wout Poels arrived at the finish line, who immediately brought his leader Chris Froom.
The British cyclist is so after the four triumphs of the Tour de France near the first of the Spanish Vuelta.On Sunday, he just needs to reach the finish line in Madrid.
If he can do this, he will become the first cyclist in the modern era ( with Vuelta in the autumn ), who will imitate the French giants Jacques Anquetil (1963) and Bernard Hinault ( 1978 ) who managed to win the Tour i Vueltu in one year.
Vincenzo Nibali retained second place after winning the final hill and Ilnur shifted to the third Zakarin, who broke in the last few kilometers before Saturday’s third Wilk Kelderman.
Wet start at the start. Only after the afternoon of the afternoon, 160 riders got to the start in Corvara.In addition to the jerseys, most of them wore a raincoat. It was expected that the entire twentieth stage will be cleared and the prediction later confirmed.
A peloton is divided. Immediately after the start of the race, the unobtrusive climbing of La Reigad was waiting for the cyclists, and the main field started to split. It took about twenty miles for a day to escape.
You are not going anywhere. Among the eighteen who separated from the peloton were brothers Adam and Simon Yates (), Romain Bardet () or Nicolas Roche BMC ). But Contador’s Trek settled at the head of the peloton, and the distance between the two groups remained for about a minute. “The escape was created while we are running the peloton so that the lead is not too big.Alberto is hungry after winning, “wrote a team on his Twitter.
The escape is collapsing. The race on the forefront of La Cobertoria climbs Enric Mas ( Quick-Step ) who attacked at the foot of the hill. Only ten more cyclists remained with him, who kept their lead for a minute and a half on the main package, now also run by Bahrain Merida.
The peloton is divided. And it was just Nibali Bahrain, who at a subsequent wet summit reported so high that there was an approximately 20-member group in the peloton, but missing the fourth man of the ongoing classification Ilnur Zakarin or duo Astany – Miguel Ángel López and Fabius Aru .The Russian cyclist, however, returned to the Alto del Cordal after his exit.
Villella the King of the Upper. As the first climb of the first category was first leaked by cyclists who did not threaten it, Davide Villella was ahead of the winner of the Vuelta this year’s top competition. There was no one to overtake him in England.
Falls, falls and crashes. Downhill at the foot of England ended on the ground as Marc Soler escaped, and Vincenzo Nibali and David de la Cruz (who eventually resigned ) in the main group. But the Italian sprang to trouble, and before the end of the final hill, Vuelta returned.
And already in the lead. 10 kilometers before the finish of Pantan’s shit ended, but even then the Trek cyclist did not stay alone.He was pulled up by the Spaniard Enric Mas running behind the Belgian Quick-Step. Perhaps he too wanted the legend to be a great victory. In less than two kilometers, the two Spaniards were at Marczynski, who did not stand with them for a long time. On the contrary, Romain Bardet and Mark Soler have reached.
Marna Pellizotti’s endeavor. Franco Pellizotti was the favorite group of only eight men, but it was paradoxically his leader – Vincenzo Nibali, who was not enough at the end. While Froome and Poels then fought in vain for Contador in front of them, the battle was still third.Finally, Ilnur Zakarin was at the age of 27, near the first-ever winners of one of the Grand Tours.
Fairy tale split. With a metric of 5.5 kilometers, Contador was holding Marc Soler before he stopped completely on the road. Then it was on the thirty-four-year-old Spaniard. For a long time, Froom and Poels had a long lead over the last two kilometers and began to decline rapidly. Still, Contador needed 17 seconds. He could have been the last time in his career to ride a bicycle race to no one with his hands over his head.
