The Spaniards in the Giro: fall of Carretero and Landa saves the stage

The runner of the set Movistar suffered a fall to 30 kilometers from goal, but could rejoin. For its part, the Alavés had a quiet day without mishaps.


La Second stage of the Giro d'Italia 2019, first day online, brought some upsets for the interests of the Spanish. Héctor Carretero, Mikel Landa's gregarious partner in the Movistar team, suffered a fall some 30 kilometers from the finish line, but fortunately he was able to resume the march without serious consequences. Landa, best Spanish trick for this Grand Tour, lived a quiet day in the peloton.

That's how it was for the Spaniards in the 2nd stage of the Giro d'Italia 2019:

José Joaquín Rojas (21º): like most of his comrades, he stayed close to Mikel Landa so that he would not suffer frights. It was the first Spanish in the stage.

Mikel Landa (28th): the Alavés saved the furniture in a transition stage, without suffering any mishap and at all times well placed in the large group.

Francisco Ventoso (29º): it was close from the rest of his colleagues from the CCC, who in some sections of the stage pulled the platoon.

Víctor De la Parte (54º): generous at all times to protect its leader, Mikel Landa.

Ion Izagirre (62º): like Bilbao, did a good job to support the Colombian Lopez, leader of Astana ranks.

Pello Bilbao (71st): he remained in the squad tucking his leader, Miguel Ángel López.

Dani Navarro (80º): the runner Katusha remained in the squad and did not try any escape attempt in the two climbs of the day.44444 44

Mikel Nieve (101º): good support for the Mitchelton leader, Simon Yates.

Rubén Plaza (106º): stage in which the veteran runner of the Israel Cycling Academy did not have any surprises.

Antonio Pedrero (116º): remained close of Mikel Landa.

Lluis Mas (141º): good stage for him, guiding in many moments to his companions of Movistar throughout the day.

Héctor Carretero (145º): gave one of the scares of the day to suffer a fall 30 kilometers from the finish line with his partner Sutterlin. Luckily, he was able to get up and continue in the race.

Juan José Lobato (157º): the Nippo runner stayed close to his teammates, in the peloton.
