Enric Mas was where he had to be

The Spaniard had a great stage. Still, you can demand a little more, you have to be fighting for the drawer or those first three positions.

Enric-Mas-was-where-he-had-to-be

On this Thursday's stage it has been shown once again who is the strongest and this is Tadej Pogacar. It was demonstrated in the first week, which has achieved a lot of time in its favor, and it has shown it in the Wednesday stage and this Thursday. Above is a runner who is hungry for victory. If you can, you win. It is not like other riders that we saw in the past who did not enter that fight for stage victory having already achieved what they are going to achieve.

Right now on this Tour, the Slovenian is unrivaled. With what he has shown last year it was a surprise, but this year, it is a reality and also how he has achieved it. He has also run with the pressure that last year he did not run and has responded. The surprise was almost given by Enric Mas who was perfect, what happens is that he caught a Pogacar who wanted the stage, wanted the mountain and did not want to leave anything.

Enric tried and was where he had to be. If we realize it, last year he was fifth, now he is sixth, if we remove O'Connor who is ahead of him, which is the result of a break, because he would practically make the same position as last year. Still, you can demand a little more, you have to be fighting for the drawer or those first three positions. But for this, Mas needs a little more regularity. For example, the statements he has made after the stage, saying that he has had 'two bad days', two days that have been important, as it was at Mont Ventoux and yesterday's stage. So, that has to be minimized. If a bad day can make you miss the tour, then imagine two.

The bitter side of the coin has been Uran. He is a veteran rider who was trying to fight against the new generation that is coming and I think he has been in his place what happens that the Tour has been very long and I believe that today he has ended up bursting. You can't ask for more from a runner like him.
