Spaniards on the Tour: Landa holds out with the best

The man from Vitoria was solid in the first high finish and entered the finish line with the other favorites. Enric Mas left his head nine seconds.


Mikel Landa is confirmed as the great Spanish asset for this Tour de France. The one from Murgia entered with the rest of the favorites to the general classification and with good feelings. Enric Mas, who is the leader of Movistar, lost contact and left nine seconds in the first high finish. The 16 Spaniards are still in the race (Valls left the first day), although David de la Cruz, with great difficulty after his serious fall on the first day.

This is how the Spaniards did in the 4th stage of the Tour de France

Mikel Landa (9th): First trial by fire and he did not fail. It was an explosive finish, when the Vitorian stands out more for long and deep passes. Even so, your options are still intact and the feeling is good.

Enric Mas (18th): Movistar's main asset on this Tour was nine seconds with the rest of the favorites. It is not a big difference, but there will be days much tougher than today.

Alejandro Valverde (21º): The Murcian entered 21 "behind Roglic, always with a presence in the leading positions and close to his partner Mas. We will have to see the next few days if he loses time to try to hunt down possible stages or is still close to the head.

Jesús Herrada (33rd): At 1:10, Cuenca finished. His team, Cofidis, currently has Guillaume Martin as their leader. The Frenchman was only surpassed by Roglic and Pogacar.

Marc Soler (37th): Recovering signals after the two falls on the first day. "We trust Enric," he said at the finish line. Soler reached 1: 17.

Jonathan Castroviejo (38th): The one from Ineos worked for Bernal, who was seen not having his best day, but the Colombian also arrived with the favorites.

Ion Izagirre (39th): He entered with Castroviejo at 1:26 behind Roglic. Their leader Superman wasted no time,

Pello Bilbao (43º): At 2:06. One of Landa's great squires, led the Vitorian without problems during the stage before starting the demanding final.

Mikel Nieve (48th): He also pulled on the last climb for possible options for Adam Yates and Chaves, who had no options. The Basque reached 3: 04.

Luis León Sánchez (57th): At 3:22. The Murcian also protected Superman on a day without mishaps.

Gorka Izagirre (78th): Entered at 7:06. After helping, like the rest of the Spaniards of Astana, Superman, he had a calmer ending.

Omar Fraile (84º): A 9:50. Like their three Kazakh teammates, they carried Superman in a good way.

José Joaquín Rojas (88º): The Murcian, in a calmer group at 11:39 after helping the three head men of Movistar during the day.

Carlos Verona (89th): He entered with Rojas. Also recovers from falls.

Imanol Erviti (108th): He reached 14 minutes, but his job was already done protecting Soler, Mas and Valverde on the plain.

David de la Cruz (143º): Another day of suffering for the Catalan, with an injury to the sacrum after the fall of the first day. He is making a great effort to continue. Arrived at 20: 13.
