Not going any more for Richard Carapaz in this Vuelta a España 2021. The Ecuadorian from Ineos, who had just won a historic Olympic gold, got off his bike this Saturday on the 14th stage on the way to Pico Villuercas. He was 80 kilometers from the finish line, when he could no longer keep up with the favorites for the general classification and began to lose his grip.

At that time Carapaz, who has had an intense season in which he has also run the Tour de France (he finished third), decided not to continue. The day began more than 57 minutes behind the leader, the Norwegian Eiking, and did not want to prolong the ordeal any longer.
