Award deserved for Jakobsen

The Dutch cyclist won a stage of a grand tour again after his accident in Poland on 5 August. Taaramäe kept the red jersey.


The fourth stage of the Vuelta a España unfolded as expected, taking precautions and taking into account the speed and direction of the air at all times. Jakobsen's victory in the sprint sprint up was very exciting. When he had the fatal accident in Poland, I thought it would be very difficult to see him riding a bicycle again. Winning so soon after and on a great lap is great news and a well-deserved award for the Dutchman.

The fall of Taaramäe was left in a scare, and the Estonian will wear the red jersey one more day. Burgos-BH was brave and was seen with two of the three runaway cyclists, Ángel Madrazo and Carlos Canal, who were neutralized by the peloton 13 kilometers from the finish line.

For his part, Egan Bernal wants to take the pressure off. Although there is much talk about Carapaz, Bernal has become, together with Adam Yates, who lost almost half a minute in the third stage, the leader of Ineos.

Albacete is always a land of air and for the fifth stage we will have to be vigilant. I remember a stage in 96 that ended in Albacete. Many favorites lost more than seven minutes there. Be very careful.
