The Spaniards in the Tour: Mas is 8th overall and Landa delights

The Mallorcan is the best Spaniard in the general and the Alava corridor attacked in the final part of the stage, showing that he is with good legs.

In a day that was marked by a frenetic pace in the last kilometers and the doblete of Julian Alaphilippe (stage victory and yellow jersey) several Spanish runners showed up and played a more than respectable role. Among them, Enric Mas, who is 8th overall, and Mikel Landa, who managed to escape in the final kilometers, stood out.

This was the way the Spaniards went in the third stage of the Tour de France

Mikel Landa (29th): the Alava corridor transmitted fabulous sensations. He escaped in one of the last climbs with three other runners, but was finally caught. He held the pace to the end with the rest of the favorites with ease. It was the first Spaniard to cross the finish line.

Alejandro Valverde (30th): today's arrival was favorable for him and he was at the head of the peloton in the final kilometers, but he was surprised by Alaphilippe attacking from a distance.

Enric Mas (38º) : solid and seamless. The Mallorcan was with the best and overcame the final stage of the stage, full of hard slopes, giving high-level samples. It is the best Spanish in the general in eighth position.

Jesús Herrada (45º): gray day for the leader of Cofidis. He did not have the strength to keep pace with the best in the last port of the day. It seemed that it would arrive descolgado but it ended up linking.

Luis León Sánchez (50º): it surrounded its leader, Jakob Fuglsang, to perfection.

Marc Soler (51º): it worked for Landa and Quintana, very attentive to its movements.

Pello Bilbao (53º): one more day, very attentive of its leader. He also rolled in head with the rest of his teammates when he had to force the pace.

Jhonathan Castroviejo (68th): he put on overalls in the final stretch of the stage when the Ineos team decided to change the pace to catch Wellens, who before the attack of Alaphilippe he was head of race. It is a life insurance for Bernal and Thomas.

Omar Fraile (83º): it was seen in the final climbs. He came to tense the race forcing a sensational change of pace. It is with good legs that of Astana.

Gorka Izagirre (107 º): worked at all times for its leader and was seen in the first positions of the peloton in some sections of the stage.

Iván García Cortina (118º): it was not the day that best suited their conditions and reached the goal saving energy for future stages.

Carlos Verona (138º): protected Landa and Quintana throughout the day.

Imanol Erviti (140º): arrapó their leaders in the flat areas , letting go in the final kilometers to save forces.
