Spaniards on the Tour: Landa and Mas, in an upward line

The two best Spaniards in the general ranking rose after holding out with the best. Jesús Herrada was in the cut of the day, which did not arrive.


Mikel Landa and Enric Mas remain among the best in the Tour de France and, while the Alava is already sixth, Enric Mas placed eighth overall on a day in which both were able to endure in the group of favorites until the final ramps. Alejandro Valverde also arrived there, who returned to act as Mas's squire. Jesús Herrada went back to rushing his options for the stage win, but the cut did not come.

This is how the Spaniards did in the 15th stage of the Tour de France

Enric Mas (5th): The Movistar Spaniard is going from less to more in this Tour and yesterday he held out in the group of favorites until Roglic's attack. The best news is that, in this Elimination Tour, the man for the general of the Spanish team is still in the race.

Mikel Landa (7th): Very well supported by Bahrain in the final climb, the Alava player was again with the best of the Tour. He was not moved by the strong rhythm of the Jumbo, but in the absence of the third week, rivals are eliminated for the podium and he is still there.

Alejandro Valverde (10th): Great news that he will be Enric Mas's squire until the end, but wear and tear did not allow him to fight for the stage. At 40 years old, he is far from his best version but completing a more than worthy Tour.

Pello Bilbao (11th): One of his duties in Bahrain is to accompany Landa on key days and that is what the Basque did. He was there for his leader until the last meters.

Carlos Verona (22nd): Until the final climb in the main group, the Madrilenian is responding in the mountains at least, to the level that should be required of him.

Jonathan Castroviejo (31st): The versatile runner from Getxo experienced the hard side of this sport, like the rest of the Ineos team. He accompanied Bernal in his sinking.

Omar Fraile (39th): Teamwork for Astana and for its leader López, waiting for their opportunity to fight for a win.

Marc Soler (40º): His moments to shine seem to be trying to get into quality leaks and yesterday he didn't play.

Jesús Herrada (41º): The Cofidis runner got into the break of the day and fought until he saw that he was not going anywhere. He has already been second and has a week left to continue seeking glory.

David de la Cruz (42nd): It was one of the last supports that Pogacar had in the group of favorites. A pity that the fall at the beginning of the Tour does not let him perform at 100% .

Luis León Sánchez (50th): He wrapped up López in the first part of the stage. The end did not suit him to be closer and on top of that he had mechanical problems.

Gorka Izagirre (52nd): Teamwork until the race was selected.

Mikel Nieve (59º): He couldn't be with Adam Yates in the final part.

José Joaquín Rojas (65º): His work must come in other types of flatter stages.

Imanol Erviti (66º): Like Rojas, he had to save his strength for days of another profile.
