The national runners remained alongside those also called to win the yellow in Paris. However, they lost 20 seconds with Pinot.


Thomas de Gendt won the eighth stage of the Tour de France after staying in flight throughout the day. Jhonathan Castroviejo went to the ground, along with most of his fellow Ineos, but suffered no obvious consequences. With regard to Landa y Mas, the favorites for the podium in Paris, lost 20 seconds with Pinot and Alaphilippe, who escaped with ten kilometers left until the end.

This was how the Spaniards went in the eighth stage of the Tour de France

Enric Mas (22º) . The first of the Spanish cyclists in goal. He was well guided by his teammates during the stage, but lost 20 seconds with Pinot, one of the calls to compete for yellow in Paris.

Mikel Landa (27th). El vitoriano remained always placed in the head positions. Like Mas, he left 20 seconds with the Frenchman of Groupama

Alejandro Valverde (31º) . He arrived at the finish line near Landa, his partner in Movistar. He also helped Quintana in the squad to avoid mishaps. Its main task is in the mountain.

Jesús Herrada (39º) . The one of Cofidis lost in goal more than two minutes with respect to the winner of the day. He did not have much prominence with the intention of reserving forces.

Gorka Izaguirre (56º) . He worked for the team with the objective of neutralizing the flight. He entered almost six minutes from De Gent.

Jhonathan Castroviejo (59th) . He went down with most of his teammates. He was one of the first to pull Thomas, his leader, so he would not waste time on the favorites.

Pello Bilbao (61º) . He printed speed to the peloton in the first section of the climb to Côte d'Aveize with the objective to cut time to escapees. He gave half of the height and left eight minutes in goal.

Marc Soler (62º) . He entered near the wheel of Bilbao and also added eight minutes to his personal account with the intention of being more profitable on the mountain.

Omar Fraile (74º) . He was close to Jakob Fuglsang, his head of ranks, during the whole stage. He added a point for the classification of the polka dot jersey.

Carlos Verona (108º) . He could not stand the rhythm that Astana printed in Côte d'Aveize and was cut with Peter Sagan. However, the Spaniard could not reconnect with the group and lost 20 minutes.

Luis León Sánchez (111º) . He led the peloton in the plains to try to neutralize the flight. He also entered 20 minutes from the winner, like Verona.

Imanol Erviti (123º) . He crossed the finish line to almost 25 minutes with the intention of being more useful in other stages.

Iván García Cortina (146º) . It was not a day fit for your sprinter profile. He arrived with the vast majority of sprinters more than 26 minutes.
