Spaniards on the Tour: Mas loses places in the general classification

The Spaniard, who started the time trial just before Pogacar, did not have his best day, but is still well placed. Omar Fraile was the best Spaniard of the day.


The Spaniards did not have an outstanding performance in the time trial ending at Laval Espace Mayenne. Enric Mas lost places in the general classification (seven) and now occupies the 14th position, being the first of the Spanish. He is 1:58 behind Van der Poel and 1:50 behind Pogacar, who did not double the shot for a few seconds. Omar Fraile was the best Spaniard of the day.

Omar Fraile (24th): the current Spanish road champion started the time trial with the intention of doing a good job and set a good performance.

Enric Mas (26th): he lost time with most of the favorites in the general classification, but as he did not have mishaps the first days (many others did), he is still in a correct position, to be able to progress, at this stage of the race.

Pello Bilbao (41st): the one from Bahrain aimed to be the second Spaniard, after Mas, to make a 'prominent' position in the general standings, but a priori he will have to fight in stages.

Alex Aranburu (55th): the Astana rider had a quiet day and finished in the first half of the table.

Ion Izagirre (65th): he is the current champion of Spain in time trial, a title achieved a few days ago, but this time he was not seen, since more suitable days for his qualities will come.

Alejandro Valverde (80º): the Murcian, at the age of 41, also had a day of letting himself go before working in the mountains and waiting for an occasion, as he did at the Dauphiné.

Víctor de la Parte (86º): the Vitorian had a day without incident after leaving in the first part of the day.

Imanol Erviti (92º): one of the best herdsmen in the squad, especially on the plains, today was the day to save the forces that were possible.

Jesús Herrada (93º): the one from Mota del Cuervo did not have one of his plans to play this time trial to the full. Days will come before they can be seen.

Rubén Fernández (104º): like Herrada, the Cofidis will have more work in later days.

Iván García Cortina (136º): the Asturian, like the majority of Spaniards, knew that today was not a day to expend more forces than necessary.

Cristian Rodríguez (149th): the winner in Rwanda this year also had a pleasant day, without major complications.

Jorge Arcas (151º): the one from Movistar limited himself to completing the day without incidents.

Carlos Barbero (159º): the Burgos, who was seen in leading positions days ago, will have more suitable days for his qualities.

Jonathan Castroviejo (165º): strange to see the Basque so far behind, because he is a great shooter, but the Ineos slogan was that everyone keep strength except for their leaders, obviously.

Carlos Verona (176th): the man from Madrid was second to last, but today he had a day of letting go. He will be an important man for Movistar in what comes.
