The stage of the day: flat and windy day without the local idol

The race arrives at La Manga del Mar Menor, with the risk of wind and with the pain that the local idol, Alejandro Valverde, will not be there.


La Vuelta, after the intense day on the way to the Balcón de Alicante, arrives this Saturday at La Manga del Mar Menor, a totally flat day that is presented as another favorable day for sprinters. So far, Jasper Philipsen has shown himself to be the fastest sprinter and also has the green jersey. Jakobsen has also made his debut, while other important names in the specialty such as Démare have not achieved the victory.

In principle, the wind should make an appearance, but it is not clear that any team is in the business of tightening the race, especially after a day of so much wear and tear like the one at the Balcón de Alicante. In it, in addition, he had to withdraw what was going to be one of the great attractions in the return of the race to Murcia, Alejandro Valverde, who after his terrible fall this Saturday will undergo surgery.
