Valverde will continue, he does not want to withdraw like this

The seventh stage of the Vuelta was overshadowed by the resounding fall of Alejandro Valverde 50 kilometers from the finish line. Australian Michael Storer won.

The seventh stage of the Vuelta a España was overshadowed by the resounding fall of Alejandro Valverde, a rider that everyone appreciates and to whom Spanish cycling owes many joys. But if before the fall I was clear that it would continue for another year, now I have it clearer. Alejandro does not want to retire like that, he does not want his last image in cycling to be retiring in the Vuelta due to a fall.

The seventh stage was very tough and demanding. We were able to verify that the Jumbo-Visma team is not as strong as it might seem at first and that defeating Roglic in a head-to-head is going to be difficult, but it can be tried in other ways, such as leaving him without a team far from the finish line. . He saved the jersey for 8 seconds, although he would not have minded losing it and that tomorrow another team would have assumed responsibilities.

A Enric Mas is looking very good, despite the fact that they are ports that do not adapt much to their characteristics, and Landa, like Carapaz, is not finishing booting. He won the Vuelta a Burgos, but the Vuelta a España is quite another thing.

In the next stage we will see a breakout, not many runners, which will be decided in the sprint. Jakobsen, Philipsen and Molano have an opportunity that they must not miss.
