Spaniards on the Tour: Landa is having a good time

The one from Bahrain was for the second day in a row among the four strongest riders in this edition. Castroviejo moved without success.


Spanish Mikel Landa showed for the second day in a row that he had a good feeling in this Tour de France, which faces its first day of rest. The one from Bahrain held out with the best in the race to the finish. Enric Mas still lacks the strength, and Jonathan Castroviejo tried to catch Hirschi for much of the day.

This is how the Spaniards did in the 9th stage of the Tour de France

Mikel Landa (5th): Second consecutive day against the best. Be part of the group of four fittest riders on this Tour. He arrived with them, even though he knew he couldn't beat them on the sprint.

Alejandro Valverde (13th): He couldn't hold out when the favorites began to attack, and completed the last climb with Adam Yates, leader of the race until today. He continues to wait for his opportunity.

Enric Mas (18th): He still doesn't have the strength to hold out with the best. He was in no man's land during the final climb, on the descent he was caught by Valverde's group and reached the finish line with them. He gave almost one more minute.

Ion Izagirre (19th): Great job in protecting Superman López, whom he accompanied almost to the end when he could not follow the attacks from ahead.

Carlos Verona (27th): Tried to form a breakaway for the second day in a row. He is being seen to be very active, putting up with team leaders a lot.

Mikel Nieve (29th): He continues to recover little by little sensations after his hard fall on the first day.

Jonathan Castroviejo (31st): Very active this Sunday. He was part of Hirschi's chasing group for several kilometers, although they could not hunt down the Swiss. He arrived with Chaves and Pinot.

Omar Fraile (36º): After disconnecting yesterday, he was present again at Astana's work.

José Joaquín Rojas (40th): He doesn't seem to have suffered any consequences after the crash he had yesterday. Generous in effort during the first leg of the day.

Luis León Sánchez (41º): Like the rest of his teammates from Astana, he worked around Superman López, although the Colombian did not have his best day.

Gorka Izagirre (42º): He arrived in the same group as Fraile, Rojas and Luisle, leaving Ion to accompany López as much as possible.

David De la Cruz (69º): He continues to be one of the main gregarious of Pogacar before the absence of Fabio Aru, who left today.

Pello Bilbao (71st): Helped Landa to the final port. One of the faithful squires of Alava.

Jesús Herrada (86º): Cuenca still does not have much prominence, waiting to find a suitable occasion to hunt a stage.

Imanol Erviti (104º): Very hard-working in the first section of the race, he got carried away to the finish line.

Marc Soler (105º): Disconnection day for the Catalan, who was thought to endure a little longer in the mountains. He gave up almost half an hour with the winners.
