Roglic came out to lose the lead

Taamaräe snatched the red jersey from Roglic at the top of Picón Blanco in a stage in which the big loser was Richard Carapaz.


Primoz Roglic and Jumbo-Visma entered the third stage of the Vuelta a España to lose the lead. They preferred to wear their team as little as possible and for another team to take over the red jersey, so they didn't even defend it. Even good old Roglic would have liked to lose a few more seconds against Taaramäe. Now there are two stages in which the Estonian's team, Intermarché, will be the one who must assume responsibility.

Carapaz was the great loser of the stage. Perhaps the tension of the Tour de France and the wear and tear of the Olympic Games have made him arrive a little more relaxed at the Vuelta, and he is undoubtedly accusing him. From now on, the great leaders of the Ineos team will be Egan Bernal and Adam Yates, and that the British was harmed by the fall of the previous day.

Movistar and Valverde did very well. When you have the opportunity to distance yourself from one of the favorites, such as Carapaz, you have to take advantage of it, and Valverde pulled the team. For their part, Landa and Enric Mas were in their place, without wasting time on their land.

In the next stages, with no apparent harshness other than the air, days of teamwork are coming in which everyone will try to break their leaders. Roglic, until arriving in Cullera, will not try to recover the red jersey.
