Spaniards on the Tour: Landa is back with the best

The Alavés recovered from yesterday's bad day and arrived with the favorites for the general classification. Carlos Verona, third, was left with the honey on his lips.


Mikel Landa regained his good feelings in the Tour de France after losing more than a minute yesterday. The Alava was again the best and tried several times. Enric Mas could also be with the favorites for much of the day, who gave up in the last kilometers. Carlos Verona, who fought throughout the day on the getaway, was left with the honey on his lips.

This is how the Spaniards did in the 8th stage of the Tour de France

Carlos Verona (3rd): He got into the day's break and fought for the victory. When the leak broke, he was never leading the race, but at his pace he hunted almost everyone. He lost the sprint for being second.

Mikel Landa (14th): He recovered from yesterday's hard day. Always with the favorites, he tried it on the final climb and gave the feeling of being in good shape. He arrived with the main riders of the general classification.

Enric Mas (20th): He held out almost to the end with the best climbers. He did not have a leading role in the group, but he endured in it until practically the end. He gave up 38 seconds with the favorites.

Alejandro Valverde (29th): He wrapped up Enric Mas until he said enough before the attacks of the important ones. Keep waiting for the right opportunity to hunt down a stage win.

Marc Soler (35º): He continues to suffer more than expected in the mountains. From the first slopes of the Peyresourde he made the rubber, and at the finish he lost more than 8 minutes with the Landa and company.

Jonathan Castroviejo (39th): He was seen in the leading positions of the peloton placing Egan Bernal, although Ineos did not take the reins of the main group.

Pello Bilbao (40th): Helped Landa to the final port. He arrived together with Castroviejo and Alaphilippe.

Gorka Izagirre (43rd): He relieved Luis León and his brother in the task of protecting Miguel Ángel López.

Jesús Herrada (59th): The hard rhythm of the Jumbo beat him. Like Valverde, he keeps looking for an opportunity to achieve something great on this Tour.

David De la Cruz (61st): He carried Pogacar well for as long as he could. Saving energy to continue helping their leader and to seek a more propitious day.

José Joaquín Rojas (69º): He crashed 80 kilometers from the finish line. They made him the sharpener and he fell, apparently without serious consequences since he ended the day in the Pinot group.

Mikel Nieve (85º): He appeared at the head of the squad representing the leader's team. Still weakened by the falls of the first day, he let himself be carried away to the end.

Imanol Erviti (87th): After completing his task, he let himself be carried away with José Joaquín Rojas in the large group that came from behind, including Pinot.

Ion Izagirre (92º): Faithful in protecting Superman López, he did not wear too much.

Luis León Sánchez (93º): He did his job of helping Superman López. He held out in the peloton until 35 kilometers to go, and found a good refuge in Pinot's group.

Omar Fraile (125º): He entered more than half an hour from Peters, the winner of the day. It wasn't his best day.
