The stage of the day: turn for the sprinters and the green jersey

The Vuelta gives another opportunity for the sprint on a day in which the green jersey will also be at stake.

The 2021 Vuelta set up a classic first week in which sprinters will have several opportunities to fight for victory in a massive finish. The day between Burgos de Osma and Molina de Aragón will be the second in four stages contested, with the best specialists in the peloton, who will try to score the victory. The first was for Jasper Philipsen, who also defends the green jersey, against the recovered Fabio Jakobsen, Arnau Démare, Juan Sebastián Molano, Matteo Trentin ... Jon Aberasturi will be the most reliable Spanish asset.

A day in which the fight for points classification will also focus attention. The change in regulation, which awards more points to the winners of flat stages, has reactivated interest in this green jersey that in previous editions seemed intended for men in the general classification. A favorite whose objective will be to overcome the nervousness of the final section and avoid possible falls.
