The Spanish on the Tour: Ion Izagirre was on the getaway

The Basque from Astana got into the break of the day, although he had no stage options in the final section. In the general, Mas and Bilbao are still in the top ten.


Except for a surprise of almost unimaginable calibers, Spanish cycling will end without a stage victory in the Tour de France for the third consecutive edition. With the time trial on Saturday and the sprint on Sunday in Paris, the options have been exhausted. Ion Izagirre was the last to try. The Basque, who will be at the Tokyo Games, got into the day's break, although he ended up far from victory in the end. Enric Mas and Pello Bilbao saved the day, despite the fact that the Spaniard fell to the ground.

This is how it was for the Spaniards in the nineteenth stage of the Tour de France

Ion Izagirre (18th): the youngest of the brothers was on the break, but could not enter the breakaway. Finally, he came within almost three minutes of Mohoric, although he tried every way.

Jorge Arcas (29th): the one from Movistar was one of the three of his team who tried to flee, but right in the good cut he caught him looking back.

Alejandro Valverde (30º): the Murcian also tried to break into the escape, but could not be part of it. Go ahead with the set-up for the Games.

Iván García Cortina (31st): the gourd was the third member of Movistar who tried to enter the break, but the good cut caught him at the end of the group.

Enric Mas (34º): crashed in the initial section of the stage, but luckily it was a fall without consequences. He was able to return safely to the group, supported by his companions.

Pello Bilbao (36th): the Basque saved the day without problems, remains ninth overall and celebrated the victory of his teammate Mohoric.

Imanol Erviti (37th): the Navarrese protected his leaders and made it through another day without incident.

Carlos Verona (39th): little by little, and after overcoming many pains, the Movistar gregarious will be able to arrive in Paris for one more year.

Jonathan Castroviejo (50th): the Basque, one of the best gregarious in the peloton, protected his leader Carapaz and passed the day without problems.

Cristian Rodríguez (60th): The winner in Rwanda this year was finally unable to get into a getaway, but is one step away from reaching Paris on his debut Tour.

Rubén Fernández (87th): quiet day in the main squad alongside Guillaume Martin. His teammate Laporte was second.

Jesús Herrada (96th): the man from Mota del Cuervo did not show himself as much as he would have liked on this Tour, but he will arrive in Paris ... and then the Tokyo Games.

Omar Fraile (99th): also tried to enter a second break that was formed, but without success. His victory at Mende in 2018 remains the last Spanish triumph in this event.

Víctor de la Parte (100th): the man from Vitoria, who is still recovering from a hard fall, saved the day without incident.

Alex Aranburu (114th): the Basque from Astana already tried his luck in a previous breakout and could not succeed, but he did well.

Carlos Barbero (124th): day saved by Burgos, who arrived in the final part of the peloton. Close to finishing your first Tour.
